Jasper Kitchen + Bar will be the first restaurant on the property. Melissa explained the previous golf course only offered a snack bar.
The restaurant and bar will seat 44 people inside and offer brick oven fired pizzas, salads and sandwiches.
“We do have a bigger plan and vision for what we want to provide, but we do want to start small,” Melissa said.
In the future, they hope to add outdoor seating and breakfast.
The couple does not have experience in the restaurant industry, but Melissa said they saw an opportunity to provide an investment in the community and took it.
“It’s definitely been a learning curve, but we’re up for the challenge,” Melissa said. “Our hearts are really invested in the project.”
Jasper Kitchen + Bar will open at 11 a.m. Monday, July 11. The restaurant and bar will then be open daily for lunch and dinner.
