KEWAUNEE, Wis. (WFRV) – A Kewaunee restaurant is closing its door due to challenges created by the coronavirus.

According to a Sunday Facebook post, Kunkel’s Korner will close its doors on Sunday, August 9 “due to staffing shortages and the effects of the COVID virus.”

“We have been so fortunate to have served such a wonderful community for the last 16 years and would love to see all of our customers and friends in the next two weeks. Also, if you have a gift certificate, we encourage you to come in and use it. We will plan to be open our regular business hours, but please watch our Facebook page should anything change,” Mark and Stacy Kunkel say in the post.

According to the restaurant’s website, Kunkel’s Korner has been open since December 2003. In 1966, the building was Larry and Mona’s restaurant.
