Canton Pub has new owners

The Canton Pub on Main Street, Canton has been around for many years. This last fall, many people feared that it was gone for good. There were three weeks that it was closed before Nick and Rene Prestby took over in October as owners.

The Prestbys moved to Canton from Atlanta, Georgia in a whirlwind life-changing decision. Nick grew up in the area, and his sister ran the pub before he took over.

Nick said they moved back to be near family, but also because of the slower pace. He worked construction in Atlanta, and felt it was time for life to calm down.

The couple has three grown daughters that are still living in Atlanta. Rene worked in Special Education for many years, so this new life has been a big change for both of them.

“We have never done anything like this before,” said Rene.

So far, things have been going really well for them. They did some remodeling and redecorating, and have made the place their own.

“Surprisingly, we are work ing really well together,” joke Rene.

The couple has been married for 24 years, and are glad they made the decision to move from Atlanta, even though they miss their daughters.

“Things happened fast,” said Rene. “Things are falling into place and it seems like it was meant to be.”

The Prestbys have received a lot of support from the community. “People are thrilled to see it stay open,” said Rene.

Nick built a handicap ramp in the front of the building to give easier access to customers. They have also opened up the front area more so customers can see them. They really enjoy getting to know everyone, and being involved in all aspects of the business. Working together, they both cook, and they have part-time employees that help, including a bartender on the weekends.

“We complement each other well,” shared Nick.

Even when things get really busy on the weekends, customers have been very patient and supportive, and tell the owners that the food was worth the wait. The Prestbys are really happy to hear comments like that.

Nick worked at the Canton Pub when he was a kid, and he worked there helping out as a cook in recent years when he would come home for a visit. It seems with this new adventure that things have come full circle for him.
