The Cavis Grill at the corner of Quay and Michigan in downtown Port Huron was officially sold on Tuesday, July 23rd. The new owners plan to keep the longtime diner open for business. One of the new owners, Kyle McCalmon, said, “It all happened really fast.” The deal, “closed on Tuesday and opened the restaurant for business as usual on Wednesday.”
McCalmon is partners in the business with Chris Smith. Going forward, small changes will be made to the restaurant in phases, and those changes will take some time said McCalmon. They are currently working to obtain a liquor license, and McCalmon said they are exploring the idea of Cavis becoming more of a burger bar in the future. He went on to say he didn’t want to “pigeon hole” it to that exactly because there will be more on the menu than just burgers. McCalmon and Smith have blueprints for the restaurant’s eventual design, and they are excited to enter into this new venture together.
