Fire update: Month 2

It has now been two months since a fire broke out in the hood system at Trafford Restaurant.

We are waiting for insurance investigations to be complete so we can begin the major repairs that are needed: electrical system, hood system, HVAC, flooring and wall repairs, attic and roof reconstruction, ceiling tile replacements, and equipment repairs and replacements.

Everything that can be cleaned and fixed in the meantime has been done: ceiling tiles removed, cork floor tiles torn up and water-soaked walls torn down. Further reconstruction is on hold pending the final insurance investigations about the cause and origin of the fire. We have been notified that fire investigators have identified third party companies that may have responsibility for the fire and this is contributing to the delay.

We anticipate getting the green light to rebuild soon and hope to be open again to serve you in a few months.
