Avery business forced to close two days a week

“I have some drive from Johnson City. I have lots of people who come maybe not everyday but four to five days a week” Peters said.  Her father built them the Tartan Restaurant, based around home cooking. Tartans hang on the wall representing the different Scottish families that participate in the Highland Games each year.  Summer is the busiest time of the year because more people are heading up the mountain to explore the area and eat at staples like the Tartan.

Owner Sharon Peters has always worked in the hospitality business. She went from beauty shops to restaurants. Her dad had an idea in the 1980s for her and her sister to run their own restaurant. For some parts of the Tar Heel State, we’re entering the busiest time of the year for tourism. One restaurant in the North Carolina mountains, the Tartan Restaurant, has been open seven days a weeks since the 1980s, but it’s been forced to close two days a week for the first time ever.

“We were distilled at a young age, the work ethic,” Peters said.  Businesses are having staffing issues due to the pandemic

The lack of workers has dropped her restaurant to five days a week. “Places like me, little moms and pops, they are going to go under because of this,” Peters explained. “It hurts my heart and hurts my pocketbook,” she said. 

However, Peters can’t find enough people to work to keep the business open everyday.  “People here in Avery County depend so much on the summer tourist season for the livelihood, to make enough money to get through the winter months,” Peters added.
