Small Business Spotlight (PREVIEW): Sunrise Steakhouse in Kokomo

UPDATE: Sunrise Family Steakhouse is now open, as of 12/3/2010! Hours are 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., 7 days a week! Serving breakfast all day.

UPDATE 2 p.m., 12-9-2010: Sunrise Family Steakhouse was closed Wednesday, 12-8-2101. According to local media, the employees reported that Board of Health violations, as well as lack of payment to employees and contractors were the reasons for closing. At this point, in local media, only the employees have provided statements, not the Board of Health, contractors, or the owner. I heard the same statements from the employees and two contractors yesterday before they decided to close, but since I did not speak to the Board of Health or the owner, I did not report the reasons. An eye-witness reported to me at 12:15 p.m. today that the police were questioning the owner at the restaurant location. As further details are available from reliable sources such as authorized spokespersons, I will pass that information on to you.

After being vacant for 3-1/2 years, the former DAMON’S location on US31 in Kokomo will be housing a new restaurant soon, with something for everyone: Sunrise Family Steakhouse.

Owner Salvador Lopez successfully operates the Sunrise Family Restaurant in North Vernon, Indiana. He’ll be bringing a similarly wide menu (click this link) to Kokomo, and his target for opening is just after Thanksgiving 2010. To complement the amazing variety of dishes for lunch and dinner, they will also serve breakfast any time.

Watch later this month for a more detailed report on the style, special features, and hours, for your dining pleasure at the soon-to-be-opening Sunrise Family Steakhouse!

  1. This business was closed today due to Health Code Issues along with workers and contractors not being paid.

  2. Not off to a good start. The business has written several bad checks to other local businesses and the new Sunrise employees, not a good way to start a business in a smaller town in my mind.

  3. The official name is “Sunrise Family Steakhouse.”

  4. Every time I see blogs as good as this because I should stop bludging and start working on mine.Thanks
