Fans of Savory Faire restaurant, which closes Thursday, won’t have to wait long for their favorite fresh-food fix, when the business re-opens as a scaled-down operation at a new location in Montesano sometime in December.
Josh Bachtell, who will co-own and operate the new location with his parents, Candi and Randy, said Savory Faire is moving back to the “little yellow house” at Pioneer and Third that was the original home of his mother’s fledgling business some 27 years ago.
There, they will offer counter service and grab-and-go fare from, tentatively 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. There will be some seating, but it will be limited as Josh Bachtell called the new incarnation of the business “a quicker Savory Faire.” He said the family will use the month of November to take inventory of what should be moved from the old restaurant to the new location and nail down details.
“It’s still a work in progress,” Josh said. But he did note that the new location will offer a drive-through window and about 90 percent of the items currently on the Savory Faire menu.
“It will be something like a deli,” Josh said. “Everybody still wants good food, but they don’t have the time to sit down anymore,” he said.
