Nelly to appear on Crown Candy Kitchen’s episode of ‘Restaurant Recovery’ on Discovery+

News

ST. LOUIS – Crown Candy Kitchen will be featured on Discovery+‘s new series “Restaurant Recovery” and a St. Louis native will appear in the episode as well.

The show follows the CEO of Raising Cane’s Todd Graves as he visits restaurants across the country. In Crown Candy Kitchen’s episode, Nelly visits too.

Graves works “directly with local owners that are struggling to hang on, by providing creative ideas and hands-on renovations to bring the restaurants back to glory,” according to a Discovery+ press release.

“A 107-year-old candy shop and diner in St. Louis struggling to keep the lights on, as Todd recruits rapper Nelly to help boost sales,” Discovery+ said of the episode.

The episode titled “Nelly to the Rescue” will air on April 22.

It is obvious that Crown Candy Kitchen and Nelly enjoy supporting each other. Nelly took a selfie with the owners during a visit there in summer 2020. Crown Candy Kitchen then posted it on their Facebook Page with kind words of support for the rapper while he was on the finale of Dancing with the Stars.

On September 23, 2020, Crown Candy Kitchen posted on Facebook letting customers know that they were struggling.

“Sadly this is our reality right now. We can’t remember the last time we had a good line for lunch. These are definitely trying times and we are reaching out for your support. Come down and see us for lunch! We have dine in or carry out. Also stay tuned for our online candy store – it’s going to be opening back up soon,” the post said.

The post got over a million views and St. Louisans showed their love for the lunch spot immediately.

In the three days after the post owner Andy Karandzieff estimated he served more than 3,000 people.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
