It is still rough, there is still work to be done, and we have a bigger dream for this location.” She explained that the family wants to have the diner in the front, the store in the back and a soda bar in the future.Currently, the establishment features a diner with specialty sandwiches, homemade chips, floats, fresh baked cookies and more. The store is stocked with wares, such as jewelry, t-shirts, metalwork and more, from local artists and creators.“I could stand here all day and name all the wonderful people that have helped us,” Alyson said following the ribbon cutting ceremony. “Thank you for all those that helped us get to this point. What a wonderful celebration. We still have big dreams of growing and expanding.”The 50 & 6 Diner and Country Store is located at 1939 East Main Street in Wellington.
