Chip and Joanna Gaines apparently snub staff and fellow restaurateurs after opening a new restaurant
The HGTV stars apparently did not make an effort to meet their partons on opening night or even get to know their staff. Visitors and locals there found their behavior very weird.
Chip and Joanna Gaines apparently aren't the friendliest people. According to Radar Online, the couple isn't really personally invested in their new business. According to an online source, the business couple did not meet their employees at their new establishment. Magnolia Table, the Gaines' new restaurant, opened in Waco, Texas this week.
The article suggests that the 'Fixer Uppers' stars were too busy to mingle with their employees. “Two employees of Magnolia table said they hadn’t even met Joanna and Chip,” a patron reportedly said “I find that weird. If I was a business owner I’d make sure I’d meet everybody.”
Allegedly, the couple had already faced a backlash from locals ever since their restaurant opened on Monday. One source suggested that the couple doesn't visit their businesses very much, while another said that a few employees haven't ever met Joanna Gaines. “Someone working on the silos for a while said they never met Joanna,” the source said.
The source also said that the new restaurant owners even managed to snub a few local restaurants. “Two weeks prior to their Monday opening, Chip and Joanna had guests by invitation only,” a nearby restaurant owner alleged. “I’m sad we didn’t get invited because we’re close by. They haven’t reached out.”
Another surprising allegation is that apparently, the HGTV stars distance themselves from all their businesses. “They don’t go to their businesses very much,” the source apparently stated.
While the lives of celebrities are always under scrutiny, it's easy to get carried away with assumptions. Chip and Joanna have had a very successful year last year and are currently expecting their fifth child. It sounds like this rumor may have jumped the gun.
Apart from being the stars of HGTV's 'Fixer Uppers', Chip and Joanna Gaines started the Magnolia Market, which is one of the top tourist destinations in Waco. They have also partnered up with Target to create a new home line called 'Hearth & Hand'.
