Jasmine restaurant not for sale says owner

Land and building are for sale, but beloved diner is not

This ‘for sale’ sign caused some confusion and panic among West Shore residents who thought Jasmine Family Restaurant might be closing. It’s not

Devotees of Jasmine Family Restaurant on Island Highway in Colwood had a scare over the Labour Day weekend when a “for sale” sign appeared in front of the beloved diner.

The owners of the restaurant assure the public the restaurant is not for sale or closing. The building and land is for sale but the restaurant still has a lease in place.

The placement and somewhat confusing nature of the “for sale” sign came as the result of a misunderstanding with the landlord.

 

“We’re not going out of business, we’re not selling,” owner Judy Wong said. “We’re still here and people should not panic.”
