Longtime owner of the Branding Iron Karl Schorb has retaken the reigns as operator of the downtown restaurant.

Longtime owner of the Branding Iron Karl Schorb has retaken the reigns as operator of the downtown restaurant.

Ongoing disputes between Schorb and Shane Dayman, who took over the business July 1 became very public over the last few weeks as RCMP officers were seen in the parking lot several times.

As told to the Review by Schorb and Dayman the agreement was that Schorb and partner Suzanne Siemens were to stay employed at the restaurant.

By the time it closed at the end of day July 21 neither worked there anymore.

Dayman admitted to the Review none of the checks he wrote to buy the business went through. He said one bounced due to a banking error and the other he stopped payment on.

Dayman also told the Review he planned to launch a civil suit to recoup losses.

Schorb, who’s been dedicated to the Branding Iron for 17 years didn’t miss a beat and promptly reopened the restaurant July 22. The Branding Iron is open from 4 p.m. to late evening with the same menu as before.

Dayman has had another short lived restaurant owning experience in Nelson BC when he attempted to re-open The Royal a nightclub and restaurant. He only managed to open the venue a few times in December 2013 before closing.
