The Junkyard Cafe will employ 15 and will be open Saturday nights. Co-owners Karla Holman and Krystal Dzuris replaced most of the restaurant’s old booths before reopening with a new name. ANDREW McGINN | JEFFERSON HERALD

Good day at the Junkyard

“Overwhelming, exhausting ... and awesome.” That’s how co-owner Karla Holman (in pink) described the first week of business at the Junkyard Cafe, which held a ribbon cutting Friday with ambassadors from the Greene County Chamber. Holman and business partner Krystal Dzuris (next to Holman at left) were longtime employees of the former restaurant, the Uptown Cafe, before deciding to buy it. “I’ve waitressed since I was 16,” Dzuris said. “You might as well own it.”
