Carl 'Doe' Clark will close Down Home Cooking and Catering by Doe in Thomasville on Dec. 31. He said the downturn in business since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March was devasting to his business.

Carl “Doe” Clark has liked every minute of looking at people today from all walks of existence arrive with each other in his dining area at Down Home Cooking and Catering By Doe for the duration of its a few years and three months tenure at 615 E. Primary St. in Thomasville.

But when the eating home shut to dine-in customers in March when COVID-19 commenced spreading across the nation and condition, a enormous part of the pleasure Clark derived from functioning the restaurant and catering organization went away, stated the 67-yr-old. Seeing prospects choose up just take out orders was just not the exact as looking at his eating home be filled with customers eating his soul foodstuff.

With it also went the business’s economic stability. Small business has dropped 85 p.c this yr, a staggering money reduction that Doe’s cannot survive, he explained. Clark manufactured the conclusion in early December to close the restaurant for good on Dec. 31.
