Couple of Chefs Catering & Food Truck will open a sit-down restaurant in downtown Spokane called Bruncheonette.
Owners Allen Skelton and Joile Forral plan a September opening for the eatery at 1011 W. Broadway Ave., formerly occupied by an Irish pub called Knockaderry. Forral said the owners will remodel the site for about 60 seats and offer an expanded breakfast and lunch menu. The site also will offer Couple of Chefs space to work on its catering and food truck services.
The company received support from the U.S. Small Business Administration and a loan from regional nonprofit lender, Craft3. In 2011, Skelton and Forral started Couple of Chefs as a catering business and expanded with a food truck in 2012.
