Eastown BBQ Joint Closing After Less Than a Year
A BBQ restaurant on Wealthy Street in Grand Rapids is shutting its doors.
In a post to Facebook, Kelvin & Co. said they were ceasing operations:
"Due to certain circumstances out of our control and responsibilities with the structural issues at our leased space... after 8.5 very patient months and still no remedy, we can no longer operate under these conditions."
Opening in February 2019 at 1450 Wealthy St. SE, the restaurant served fresh meat smoked daily and handcrafted sides.
In an August 17 Facebook post, Kelvin & Co. shared,
We are very sorry for the inconvenience of being closed the last few days. We have not been able to open because there has been a persistent roof leak.
We are working very hard to make sure the issue is fixed via the responsible party. We will keep you updated every step of the way. Thank you for your patience."
According to Mlive, Kelvin & Co. closed a restaurant downtown Kalamazoo in Dec. 2018. A location on West Main St. in Kalamazoo remains open.
