Salon evicted by bank finds new home

Back in January we wrote about First Citizens Bank evicting tenants of a Port Orchard building following a foreclosure.

Another business located in the Piperberry Way building has found a new home in an just down the road. Helen Kestle, owner of Fab U Look makeup and hair salon, reports she has reopened at 1541 Piperberry Way.

Kestle said she considered relocating to Silverdale but quickly realized how loyal her customers were to South Kitsap.

“I’ve learned that Port Orchard people are very dedicated to supporting their town,” she said. “I’m a Port Orchard girl.”

Tommy C’s, rebranded as Cash Brewing Company, is in a soft opening phase in Silverdale, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. 

Tommy C’s may reopen as Silverdale brewery

TommyCsBuilding01_12691335_ver1.0_640_480Facing eviction in Port Orchard, the owner of popular sports grill Tommy C’s is close to inking a lease in Silverdale.

Owner Tommy Cash confirmed he hopes to relocate his restaurant to the former Old Town Bistro building on Byron Street. The Bistro shut down last summer.

If all goes to plan, Tommy C’s will reopen as Cash Brewing Company. Cash bought brewing equipment and planned to open a microbrewery in Port Orchard shortly before receiving an eviction notice at Bethel Centre.

Cash has been scrambling to find a location where he can open both a restaurant and brewery. He expects to sign a lease on the Old Town Bistro building early this week and has already applied for a microbrewery license at that address.

Tommy C’s is raising money via a GoFundMe.com campaign to help pay for relocation. Cash said renovating the Bistro building could cost about $75,000.

Cash plans to keep the restaurant open at its current location for as long as possible, but he needs to vacate by the end of February.

About 300 people watched the Super Bowl at the Tommy C’s Sunday.

“Everybody just had a blast,” Cash said.

Sk8Town, which shared the Bethel Centre building with Tommy C’s, plans to close Feb. 8. The roller derby league that used Sk8Town as its home rink is also searching for a new home.
