Detroit travel agent Waffle House will be opening its doors to the general public on February 8. 

 “We will be bringing our customers back to our hometown for the first time in years,” said Waffle house spokesperson Lauren Staley in a statement.

“We are excited to welcome back customers from the comfort of their homes to enjoy the experience.”

The new Wafflehouse is the latest in a string of new restaurants and bars to open in Detroit. 

A lot of these places will be welcoming to those seeking to escape the economic and political crisis that has plagued the city.

“The best thing about being a travel agent is that we have the opportunity to connect people with destinations they can’t get to, and we’ve been able to do that by connecting them to our own family members,” Staley said.

“There’s no way we could have done that without their support.”

A number of other restaurants have also opened, including the Grand Palace in the Park at the Detroit Zoo, and the Red River Cafe in the downtown Detroit area.
