Co-owner John Dietering of Dassel’s Sunrise Diner reported Monday morning that the business closed the doors to the diner permanently.
Diertering expressed gratitude to the citizens of Dassel for their constant support. “The people of Dassel were very good to us. They gave us business,” he said. “And they tipped more than they should have.”
When Dietering put up several signs near the highway pointing to the diner, he said MnDot quickly removed them.
“There just isn’t enough volume,” Dietering said. And while he and his co-owners may sell or lease the business, he isn’t entirely certain what will come next. He has owned eight or nine businesses throughout his life.
“You win some, you lose some,” he said.
