News from the Wakefield Inn & Restaurant
It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the sale of the Wakefield In & Restaurant. It was a difficult decision to make, however, as life changes, we too need to make adjustments along the way and we have decided to retire from the lodging and restaurant business in order to spend more time with family.
Over the last 9+ years being in the business, we have invested a tremendous amount of time and effort building this business from the ground up to where it is today. We are incredibly proud of our accomplishments in providing our customers, from both near and far, with an exceptional dining and hospitality experience. We are truly amazed and humbled by the outstanding following of our friends and loyal customers over these many years
Our plan is to stay open through Friday December 16th. We've got several events; a wedding, a vow renewal, 2 holiday luncheons and the Wakefield Panthers Football end -of-the season banquet, that we wouldn't miss hosting for the world! Our plans to close the Inn will enable us to focus on identifying new owners and to also offer training to ensure a clean and seamless transition.
In addition to us featuring the property as a turnkey Inn & Restaurant business, the Wakefield Inn will also be offered as a residence. For those who may not know, the Inn, built in 1804, has been a family residence nearly as many times as it has been an Inn. Back in the 1970's, the Inn was featured as "home of the month" in New Hampshire and those same family members, who made the Inn their home, actually made their way back to us to share their heartfelt stories (and yes sliding down the banister was one!).
In sharing this news with our staff last week and today with our friends and customers, you may ask, how can we help? You ALL can help us in finding new owners for the Wakefield Inn & Restaurant by sharing our story and the property offering on your social media, with your friends, relatives, co-workers and acquaintances..
We are SO very grateful to our amazing customers who have helped us grow our business to where it is today. How do we say goodbye? How do we thank our staff? How do we thank the Wakefield community for all of your support? You've watched our family grow and those of you who helped us stay open for Valentines's Weekend 2015, you know who you are; The Scala Family and the Keating/ Poor People Pub Family. We were so touched. We hope to see as many of our customers and friends prior to December 16th!
We love you and miss you!
