The transaction was facilitated by Cafe Chew’s Bob King and Tobin Craig Wirt, acting as the negotiating agents, having both recently obtained real estate licenses with Commercial
Realty Advisors.

Throughout the years, King and Wirt have owned and operated Marshland, the Bee-Hive Tavern, the Bee-Hive General Store, a little sandwich shop at Russell’s Corner, and in 2009, converted Merchant
Square Deli into Cafe Chew. After having spent more than 40 years in the restaurant industry, the pair is excited to begin this new chapter in their careers as commercial real estate sales agents focusing on hospitality.

Café Chew has been a gathering place for locals and visitors alike for over two decades.  The new owners emphasize that while ownership has changed, Cafe Chew will remain the same, with the existing
menu and staff intact. King and Wirt will assist with the transition.
