STAUNTON -- Nearly a month, several Shoney's locations in the area closed their doors to the public.

A new restaurant, Hometown Grill and Buffet, reopened those same doors in the Staunton location.

Hometown Grill and Buffet is a restaurant that serves similar food to Shoney's. The new restaurant is owned by two former Shoney's employees and they rehired most of the staff that had worked for Shoney's.

Wednesday was the grand opening for the new restaurant and the owners were glad that the community came out to support them.

“We didn't do a lot of advertising, so they took what we said a few weeks ago about when we were going to open. They remembered it and they came. I did some Facebooking and a lot of people came out to support us,” said Belinda Shrewsbury, an owner of Hometown Grill and Buffet.

Shrewsbury was thankful for all the previous owner did to help. She said they couldn't have opened as fast as they did without it.
