It was with great sadness that I read this week that “Come and Get it, Chicken and Waffles” will be closing at the end of the month.
Besides having some truly delicious Chicken and Waffles, the restaurant was unique in many ways. The owners took a big risk with location, and their attempt to help grow downtown surely had some affect, as they drew customers from all around.
They first located on the Fulton Mall, but then moved on to an even less commercially successful district, Fresno’s own Chinatown.
Not only did they pick an area in need of a lot of help, but they also had very special operating hours, which filled a very important niche.
