Chip and Joanna Gaines have gained national attention and fame recently. The lovable duo has been taking old and broken homes and transforming them into works of art.
Currently, the married couple hosts a television show called "Fixer Upper" that details their renovations. However, the couple has now set their sights on a new goal!
In a recent interview, Chip and Joanna made a major announcement! Fans were extremely excited when they heard about the couple's plans to open a breakfast restaurant!
“I’ve always been a breakfast connoisseur,” Chip told the magazine. “I always do a heavy, bigger breakfast, but Jo is the exact opposite. She was kind enough to come with me on this one, and we are going to do up a breakfast joint here in town," said Chip.
The cafe he is talking about is the historic Elite Café in Waco, Texas. It was built in 1919.
“The restaurant itself is literally one big giant kitchen,” says Chip. “When we first got in there, it was all the things you can imagine—dingy, musky. But if I took you in there today, you’d be like ‘Oh! This is so clean, everything smells so great.’ Those are a few benefits of a little bit of elbow grease and hard work on the front end.”
Chip and Joanna have been known to keep as much of a project's history as they can. They said this cafe will be no different.
“Now, everybody that comes in tells me how smart I was to have bought this property,” he says. “Six months ago, I wasn’t getting as many encouragements. But the restaurant has some serious history that we’re going to tap into.”
What do you think about their new endeavor? Would you want to eat there when they get it all "fixed" up?
