Popular downtown soup & sandwich joint closes

There won’t be a line at Jenny’s Lunch Line today. The business is closed, and the crew behind the counter is no longer involved.

The business located behind Wise Guys Pizza at Sixth and Main served fresh sandwhiches and soups with a rotating menu. 

Married couple Kristy Scott and Jen Oneida have been working to purchase the business and earlier this month started promoting a GoFundMe account to help. The goal is $24,000 – and about $3,700 has been raised.

But the campaign didn’t come in time to make things work.

“Our deal with the owner fell through,” Scott told BoiseDev. “They are currently still trying to sell it, But it is closed in the meantime. “

The couple says they could not reach a deal with current owner HBM Marketing and decided to walk away.

”We love our customers, and never want to disappoint you. Jen and I are trying to figure out future endeavors, and hope that our break from making food for you, is a brief one,” they wrote.

The couple says any funds raised from the GoFundMe campaign will help them start a new venture.

 “Jen and I plan on opening our own place as soon as we can, and so our GoFundMe will now be going towards that goal,” Scott said  

We’ve reached out to the business owners and will update if we hear more
