Bruno and Tiffany Silva own The Landing restaurant at Smith Mountain Lake and even during the off-season they are staying busy.
They've owned the restaurant for ten years and for the last two years have been taking their cuisine on the road.
Through growing partnerships with other businesses locally, regionally, statewide and across the East Coast they are busier than ever.
"I have not had a day off in six months," says Bruno.
But the Silvas aren't complaining as building a business network with others continues to be a winning partnership for everyone.
They have traveled to New York City, Charleston South Carolina, Richmond, and other parts of Southwest Virginia including Nelson County and Parkway brewing Company in Salem.
They also maintain partnerships close to home now partnering with Sunken City to offer Sunday dinners at the brewery for the next three months.
They are also a key part of a plan to hold an oyster festival in Salem March 22 with Parkway Brewing Company.
Tonight on WSLS 10 at 5:30 Karen McNew has more on the business model that's making sense for the couple and how Bruno is able to turn brussels sprouts into tasty treats both in the restaurant and on the road.
