The Randolph Grille
is the third project of a group of investors who are determined
to revitalize our hometown of Winchester. The long anticipated
Grand Opening will be May 1.
The first project, completed and open for just over a year -
Randolph Inn and Suites. Located just off Hwy 27, south of
Hwy 32, the 3-story hotel, with 47 rooms and 12 suites, features
an indoor pool; free wireless Internet, a microwave and fridge
in each room and one suite with a kitchen. There is also a
banquet room that will accommodate 60.
the recently completed Towne Square Cinema. It has three
screens and shows first run movies, with a new movie each week.
The community seems to have received it well. The café, which
is attached, is being remodeled and should open for business
around the 1st of May. It will focus mainly on the morning
coffee-muffin crowd along with a full lunch menu.
The third project, the Randolph Grille, will be a
full-service restaurant and lounge. The main dining area will
seat approximately 90 people with an adjacent lounge that will
accommodate 30. The lounge will have access to a covered patio
area that will seat an additional 25 to 35, weather permitting.
For those in need of a large room for a special occasion, the
Banquet Hall at the Randolph Grille will accommodate 80. A very
special feature will be the Gift Shop that will feature crafts
and gifts made by craftspeople from Randolph County.
The menu will feature great steaks and prime rib, along with a
variety of fish, and other items. The Randolph Grille features
its own private label wine.
“Even with the opening of these three projects – we are not
done”, says Terry Hunsucker. “A project is underway to obtain
grant money to redo the facades (fronts) of all the buildings
around the town square, and a project called "Gateway" is being
submitted to redo US-27 from Greenville Pike (Wal-Mart) and past
Union City Pike (SilverTowne). This will give a new impression
of the community when you drive in on US-27.”
Terry further stated, "Should anyone want to help out, know of
any small business looking to expand or for a new home, or
someone wanting to start his or her own business or who has
failed retirement like I have, we would be glad to talk to them.
If any of you have ideas or would like to support new business,
but just don’t know where to begin, please feel free to call
David or me. We welcome all ideas, questions and a willingness
to assist. There are so many of you who have business knowledge
and talents we could use.
If you are in Winchester, please be sure to stop in for a meal
at the Randolph Grille. As we say in the south, Ya'll
come down for some fixin’s when you get a chance."
Mark your calendars – May 1 and drop by if you are in
