Green Gold Diner opens in downtown Evart

Owner ready to serve up delicious meals to customers

EVART — This week marked the grand opening of The Green Gold Diner, Evart’s newest eating establishment.

Owner Christopher Elliot said he was excited to be able to throw open the doors for the very first time, and hopes to see the smiles of satisfied customers upon eating their meal.

Elliot originally hails from the Evart area and said that was the primary reason why he wanted to open a new diner in town.

“We did a couple dry runs last week and there were a few little hiccups we needed to get fixed,” Elliot said.

The Green Gold Dinner will be the second Diner Elliot has opened in the state of Michigan, with the other being located in Rockford.

From buying the location, to getting everything set up, the eventual opening, Elliot said was a relatively quick process.

“From buying to opening the building was probably about a month-and-a-half,” Elliot said.

The Green Gold Diner, located at 201 W. 7th St., derives its name from the town of Evart and its surrounding areas.

To Elliot and to the locals who will eventually choose to sit down for a meal, the name Green Gold holds plenty of historical significance.

“I did some research and back in the 1800s, they named Osceola County as the land of the green gold, because of all the timber and trees,” Elliot said.

It is Elliot’s hope that his newest establishment will be a true hometown diner for proud residents of a historical community, located directly in the center of Osceola County.
