The Food Network television program “Restaurant Impossible” is seeking volunteers to assist in renovating Ducky’s Family Restaurant, 816 E. Markland Ave. The program, starring Chef Robert Irvine, aims to save restaurants facing impending failure in just two days and with a budget of $10,000, according to a news release.
Producers of the program are looking for skilled contractors, including electricians, plumbers and painters, and design volunteers who will assist in painting, crafting, remodeling, cleaning and decorating to work Thursday and Friday. Times are from 1 to 8 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday.
Meals will be provided to volunteers. Volunteers must be comfortable with being on camera and should wear comfortable clothing with no logos. Assistants are not limited to a single shift. If interested, email Nick at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, preferred shift, email address and cellphone number.
Additionally, a grand reopening of Ducky’s will occur at 7 p.m. Friday. The general public is invited to make reservations for that night by calling Ducky’s at 765-457-7033. The program airs on Wednesday nights on Food Network, and the episode filmed in Kokomo is slated to run sometime in August or September.
