After a change in ownership, the Bonfire Restaurant in West Kelowna’s The Cove Lakeside Resort will remain closed until the spring.

The eatery has been closed since Jan. 2 and will remain closed until sometime in March.

“This temporary closure is one that we felt was necessary after the very sudden and challenging events of early December in order for us to assume operations in the manner with which we felt necessary,” said Arlene Schuppener, director of operations, at The Cove Lakeside Resort in an emailed response.

Employees were initially concerned about losing their jobs after the numbered company announced it would cease operations of the restaurant, citing difficulties with turning a profit, but employees held onto their positions after a snap decision from The Cove, which took over the ownership in December 2019.

“It took a significant contribution from the management team of the Cove hotel and the on-site leaders in the restaurant to ensure the smooth navigation of the busy Christmas party season for both our event and restaurant service teams,” Schuppener said.

“As we have done in the past, initiating a temporary closure during the first part of the New Year allows time for our teams to perform scheduled tasks to ensure both the physical and operational well being of the restaurant.”
