MADISONVILLE, Ky. (WFIE) - We’re just a day away from the reopening of a Hopkins County staple.
Ferrell’s Snappy Service in Madisonville is set to open back up Friday, just in time for Friday Night Live.
You might remember the diner was damaged in a fire back in September. Fire officials said it started as a grease fire on a stove.
The kitchen and dining areas were both badly damaged, but they are ready to get back to it.
They are going to show off the new renovated restaurant and grill up the first burger since the fire. That burger is going to Reid Davis, he was the highest bidder in the Madisonville-Hopkins Co. Public Library silent auction.
Everyone else can get one Friday.
“The community’s been wonderful,” says owner Carolyn Ferrell. “There’s been so much support from people calling and leaving messages on the phone to honking when they go by and everywhere we see people, the Clerk’s and Kroger and people on the street ask when we’re reopening, so its been really humbling to see how important this restaurant must be to the community.”
Now, Ferrell’s official grand reopening is Friday and 14 News Sunrise plans to have live coverage from the restaurant.
