Restaurateur cites pandemic as factor in closing

A long standing, well known, Janesville eatery is closing. On the Kealy’s Kafe Facebook Page, Matt and Hannah Kealy announce the restaurant on Washington Street will be closing. Matt thanks the previous owners for believing in a young man who started washing dishes for them almost 24-years ago. The Kealy’s also thank the hundreds of employees that have worked for them over the last 17-years. Kealy says it’s no secret the restaurant and tourism industry has been hard hit during the pandemic and his business was not immune. He says after a discussion with family and employees they decided the last day for serving customers will be this Friday.
