Annville’s Corvette Bar and Grille is slated to reopen its doors on Wednesday, Nov. 3, after two long years.
According to Corvette’s Facebook page, special sneak peek weekends will precede the official opening. The October weekend dates will include limited beer, liquor, and pizza. Corvette will open for the next sneak peek weekend on Oct. 22 and 23.
“Thank you all for your support even when we were down and out,” Corvette’s Facebook announcement read. “Thank God for strength and patience! Thank you to everyone in the community that has been encouraging us. We really look forward to serving you all soon!”
The reopening comes one month after the establishment’s job fair in September, during which they advertised open positions for cooks, servers, and bartenders.
Jeff Dunn Jr., previous owner of Corvette, has handed the business off to new owners.
“I’ve decided to focus my attention on solo projects I’ve been working on,” Dunn told LebTown. “I truly enjoyed every day I was there. I’ll definitely miss all the great customers.
“Thankfully, I’ve made some amazing new friendships out of this experience. The Corvette is under great ownership and I anticipate they’ll be there another 50 years.”
The new owners of the establishment had not responded to requests for comment as of publication time.
Corvette, located at 202 W. Main St., was devastated by an electrical fire on Aug. 21, 2019, and since then, renovations have been ongoing.
The damage from the fire was severe. Union Hose Company fire chief Philip Snavely called it the biggest fire Annville had seen in 10 years. In order to preserve Corvette – one of the oldest brick structures in Annville – the place was gutted.
The news of the reopening has been met with enthusiasm from dedicated Corvette lovers on Facebook. After nearly two years, many people are ready to convene in the newly renovated Annville staple once more.
