The Shiloh Brew and Chew made a bad marketing decision with its name, since the Tennessee family restaurant neither sells liquor or tobacco. But after making the decision to post a “guns are welcome” sign the establishment has seen an even greater number of customers.
Only one person has complained and the restaurant owner says they have heard from a lot of new customers who want to support the restaurant for their pro gun stance.
According to wbir.com,
“Brew is for coffee, chew is for food. So in my mind, my concept all went together. But after I made a $3,000 sign and paid for it, I realized that was not a good marketing idea,” laughed Floyd. “But the ‘Guns are Welcome’ signs have helped boost business.”
She said while one man said he would not come back to her establishment, more than 20 new customers have come through her doors since she posted the signs on three doors.
“I can honestly say I’ve gotten way more support than the one person who really gave me a lot of grief over it,” said Floyd.
Friday, all of the customers in Shiloh Brew and Chew, many who are considered regulars, voiced support.
“Everyone needs to take a stand for what they believe Is right.,” said Ralph Tucker. “Somebody saying guns are welcome instead of somebody crying about how many people are killed with guns. And it’s not guns that kill people, it’s people that kill people.”
The owner decided to put up the sign after hearing about the North Carolina restaurant that posted a “no guns allowed” sign. We wrote about this NC establishment that was robbed at gunpoint by 3 armed crooks not long after posting the anti-gun sign. Obviously, criminals are not thwarted by “gun free zones” and they are often open invitations to crooks who don’t want to face any resistance.
The Tennessee restaurant is getting a lot of local encouragement for posting the sign. Looks like we aren’t the only ones tired of establishments banning guns to make a political point while making us all less safe.
“I have had so many customers take pictures of the sign, ask to meet me in person, and thank me,” said Floyd. “There have been as many as eight people in here at one time who I know for a fact had guns. And no one would have known it except I know them personally. They’re law abiding, god fearing, Christian people. And that’s what I stand on. That’s what my restaurant is based on. “
