About Us

Now Employee-Owned! After 28 years of operating one of the top-rated hotel and restaurant companies in the South, the founders of Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels (QW) announced on November 17, 2016 that it is now 100% owned by its 600+ staff members. This makes QW one of only a few employee-owned restaurant and hotel companies in the entire country. Learn more.

Proximity Hotel is operated by Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants & Hotels, led by Dennis Quaintance and Nancy King Quaintance. Dennis and Mike Weaver formed Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants in April of 1988 and opened their first restaurant in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1989 called Lucky 32. They started the company because they are good friends and wanted to be in business together, and because they believe that providing the services embodied in our mission will result in a successful company.

Dennis plays point with the operations of Quaintance-Weaver and Mike Weaver claims to be retired, but you can still see him doing positive things in so many parts of our community. The company has evolved over the years to become Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants & Hotels and since its inception has opened more restaurants (Lucky 32 in Cary, Green Valley Grill and Print Works Bistro in Greensboro) and the O.Henry Hotel.
