Owner of Lynn's Paradise Cafe releases emotional statement
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The owner of a well known restaurant broke her silence about the sudden closing of the establishment with an emotional statement.
Friday, Lynn's Paradise Cafe owner Lynn Winter wrote an email to WAVE 3 stating;
"I love and miss Lynn's as if it was my child, but for many
reasons that are very complex and don't fit a sound bite, it abruptly ended.
I mourn the loss of what I hoped Lynn's represented; celebration, fun,
happiness, and the unexpected. In the past week and a half, I have been
unavailable for comment. I have been grieving the loss of a special part
of my life. I know I will always have my detractors or those that say the
culture wasn't good, but from the bottom of my heart I worked every day to
create a fair, fun and sustainable work environment. I really believe
that people should be as happy at work as in their personal lives and have
tried to bring this about.
I'm sure there are those that can point to many situations where I failed and
am sorry for that but I never stopped trying to bring joy to Louisville, both
inside Lynn's Paradise Cafe and throughout the city.
In some future time when I am emotionally able to explain the abrupt
closing I will if I am able. It is at a juncture of a new evolution that
I hope will be even better. Right now it is at a point where I have high
hopes of something wonderful happening there.
The restaurant abruptly closed on January 11, one day after WAVE 3 investigated complaints from workers about new policies.
