We temporarily closed on the week of March 17 due to the COVID-19 crisis. That means over 600 of our amazing colleagues are out of work. We are heartbroken, so we have created a QW Staff Member Relief Fund to help cushion the blow. These special gift certificates are available now through April 15, 2020, and redeemable at any of our hotels and restaurants.

About this COVID-19 crisis:

We huddled (with social distance), collaborated, cried and argued about what to do next. We eventually got to a consensus. We have decided we will temporarily close QW’s hotels and restaurants in Greensboro and Cary. (O.Henry Hotel, Green Valley Grill, Proximity Hotel, Print Works Bistro and the Lucky 32 Southern Kitchens in Greensboro and Cary.) We determined that this was the best decision for the communities we serve and our colleagues, who are also our owners—because QW is employee owned.

We’ll re-open within hours as soon as the coast is clear. For now, we are using our kitchens to cook for our staff members. Sign up for updates and news and we’ll let you know what’s cooking.

 Thank you, Dennis Quaintance and the QW Team
