Restaurant Impossible - Nanny Goats Cafe and Feed Bin - CLOSED

Nanny Goats Cafe and Feed Bin Restaurant Impossible

In this Restaurant Impossible episode, Chef Robert Irvine visits Nanny Goats Cafe and Feed Bin in Kilgore, Texas.

Nanny Goats Cafe is owned by Nancy Dupre, who flips restaurants for a living but is struggling with this restaurant.

After meeting Nancy she begins to regret agreeing to show as Robert asks her questions on revenue and she gets defensive.

Robert explains that as a business owner she should know the restaurants finances inside and out and is astounded that she guesses the cost of each plate of food.

Robert observes a service and the customers find the decor cluttered and one customer is served a tough burger with a burned bun and others are served burnt food.

The food is the biggest issue and Nancy threatens to walk away from the process.

She screams at the staff before leaving the restaurant after he tells her that the root of the restaurants problem is her daughter, Jess.

Jess cooks in the kitchen but she isn't qualified or experienced in cooking food or in running a kitchen.

Robert is on the fence about the decor. He likes some elements of the dining room but hates the mismatched coloured furniture.

Nancy returns and meets with Robert, she opens up and tells him that she is worried Jess wouldn't be able to get another job and won't like her if she is critical of the food.

A new menu is introduced that Jess will be able to cook easily and the decor is revamped with less clutter and a more modern look.

The relaunch night was a success with customers loving the new food and decor and promising to return.


What Happened Next at Nanny Goats Cafe and Feed Bin?

Nancy sold the business just weeks after the show was filmed so that she could retire, Jessica also left but the other staff remained in place.

The new owners renamed the business to Nanny Goats Cafe and reported that business was good and the restaurant was full most days.

They planned to offer a dinner service over the coming months.

Nanny Goats Cafe and Feed Bin closed in November 2013, the Longview location remains open.
