Mayfield’s Carr’s Barn to reopen and host Valentine’s Day luncheon for first responders


MAYFIELD, Ky. (KFVS) – A collaborative team, made up of business leaders and nonprofits from Charleston, SC, gave a celebratory send-off today in a fully equipped industrial kitchen on wheels, dubbed the “Rolling Restaurant” which was given by the team to its new owners, Suzy and Wayne Flint.

The couple own Carr’s Barn, a third-generation family restaurant in Mayfield, KY, welcoming guests for decades to Mayfield which was reduced to a heap of rubble by the deadly tornadoes on December 10, 2021.

Why Not Charleston, a non-profit organization helping people discover, develop and deploy their capabilities, has mobilized a network of Charleston business leaders, led by well-known philanthropist Tony Berenyi, to lend a hand in the aftermath of destruction.

After learning of Flint’s peril, Berenyi contacted several Charleston business and community leaders to help with donations.

“It’s only fitting that it opens on February 14, as the effort is a true example of what can happen when we ‘love thy neighbour,'” Berenyi said.

The Flints will reopen Carr’s Barn, their new “Rolling Restaurant” on Valentine’s Day, hosting an appreciation luncheon in honor of Mayfield’s first responders.

“We are all so confused. Our city is unrecognizable in all this destruction,” Suzy Flint said in the aftermath of the storm. “It is overwhelming to think how truly human kindness can turn despair into pleasure and bring joy to people who have lost so much. The reopening of Carr’s Barn will help Wayne and I get back to doing what we do the best. better and will give us all a sense of familiarity, which is at the heart of our loss.

Carr’s Barn will reopen at 11:30 a.m. at 216 W Broadway, Mayfield, Ky.
