For those drive down highway 7 in Peterborough On, the Roland’s Steak House sign is a familiar one.

The well established restaurant has been in business for over 50 years, 29 of which have been owned and operated by Peter Brugger and his family.

Peter had been seriously considering retiring from the restaurant business, but he didn’t have the building or the business for sale, nor was he actively pursuing his thoughts.

But sometimes opportunity knocks when you least expect it.

In March of 2017, Peter was presented with an offer he couldn’t refuse. A customer came to visit and asked Peter if he would sell the building. Peter said yes, and on April 15, 2017, Peter and his staff will serve the last meal at Roland’s Steak House.

Watch this week’s MF’s Trans Canada Nissan Drive By to learn who bought the building, PLUS a fun fact about my connection to Roland’s.

Good luck Peter and family!
