MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. — It's a big day for restaurant and bar owners across our state, being able to reopen for dine-in services with restrictions.
The co-owner of Lott and Big Weezy's Kitchen, 169 E Broadway Ave., in Muskegon Heights, and Lott on the Lakeshore, 2420 Lakeshore Dr, in Muskegon, Phyllis Loudermill, says she is excited to allow people into her businesses once again.
Loudermill is known for helping find jobs and work for people who have served time.
She says they have stayed open and continued to serve meals for curbside pick up but is ready to open her doors to everyone once again.
"One of the things that as a company, we weren't prepared for COVID it was out of sight out of mind, we were looking at it from afar and when it hit it was culture shock, culture shock, in a sense that we were already struggling as a black owned business," said co-owner Phyllis Loudermill.
"I think what we're more excited about everything and inviting people back in, we're excited to see our friends again. and our family is in the smiles," she said.
Lott & Big Weezy's Kitchen is planning to have a special $10 menu deal for the reopening today.
