The former Coop’s Chicken and Beer restaurant on Blowing Rock Road has been sold to a group of owners and a chef from The Cardinal restaurant in Boone.

The Watauga Democrat reports the buyers have no restaurant concept at this time, but an official opening date will be set in the coming weeks.

The space at 455 Blowing Rock Road has undergone several ownership changes in just the past couple of years.

Since 2017 the space has been home to Tank’s Tacos, Gaijin Noodle Bar, and most recently, Coop’s Chicken and Beer.
