CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It has been a staple on North Hoskins road in North West Charlotte for 40 years. Mr. Quick is home to a quick lunch in a dining room full of friends.
"For my parents, it's their lifetime achievement," said daughter Tammy Helms.
Owners Jerry and Sally Russell have dished up to a hungry lunch crowd side-by-side for 40 years. They decided June 29, 2012, they'd close up shop for good.
The decision wasn't taken lightly, but has the couple in a perpetual good mood. As of Monday only 4 more days of working, then the couple, in their early 70's can take it easy for a while.
"I'll do whatever I want to do," says Jerry before being interrupted by his wife, "Probably putting up with me mostly," said Sally.
