FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Due to the governor's order to close all Indiana dine-in restaurants, the Redwood Inn on Main Street has been offering carry-out and delivery.

The owners said over the past few weeks, they've seen their business model change from being a 90 percent eat-in establishment to solely carry-out.

Now, they've closed their doors this week to work on revamping their kitchen to better serve carry-out customers.

The owners said they donated all of their perishable food to healthcare workers at Parkview Health.

"We would also like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the community in Fort Wayne who are continuing to support local businesses, including us, during this crisis," Melissa Earls and Barry Levy, owners of Redwood Inn said in a statement.

"While our business model has changed, our passion and dedication to our staff and community has not."  

They hope to reopen on April 7.
