The 32-year-old Burger King restaurant in Cornelia will soon be “virtually a new, beautiful restaurant – inside and out.”
According to co-owner and Habersham County native David Irvin, a total renovation of the building and grounds is underway, and the business is scheduled to re-open “in about a month,” he said.
The restaurant opened in Cornelia on December 30, 1985, the first franchise location granted to co-owners David Irvin of Clarkesville and Johnny Irvin of Tallulah Falls. Also in longtime management of the parent company, North Georgia Foods, Inc., are Habersham residents Marcia Brock and Jim Frady, Irvin said.
The manager of the Cornelia restaurant will continue to be Ramonia Ramey Allison, who has worked in management of the restaurant since 2002.
“We look forward to being here another 32 years,” David Irvin said. “The Lord has been good to us, and we appreciate all of our customers,” he added.
North Georgia Foods, Inc. also has Burger King restaurants located in Clayton and Cleveland.
