They moved to their current location two years later and they have written a success story, which has seen The Homestead become one of Greater Moncton’s favorite casual dining options. They have won several community-based awards and compliments come daily from their loyal customers.
“From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank the people of this area enough,” Godfrey said. “It’s been a lot of heart work – starting from my parents in the beginning and through the incredible staff we have been blessed with all of these years.
“Restaurants have come and gone in the Moncton area because it’s a tough business, but we’ve been able to stay here because our formula has never changed. Fads are going to come and go, and different types of restaurants have come into the market, but we still think our methods work well.”
The Homestead is facing the challenge of offering take-out meals as a way of expanding the business.
“Our type of food is not made for take-out so we’re exploring new recipes and methods,” Godfrey said. “At the same time, we don’t want to make too many changes because it worked so well for a long time.”
