Ten employees at the Sunset Restaurant ‘hit big’ last week in Franklin, after winning a quarter of a million dollars from the Mega Millions lottery drawing.

The group of coworkers had been playing once a week for four years, according to Sunset line cook Kenny Genawese, who had finally bought a winning ticket from the local Bi-Lo. The group played computer- picked numbers—10,11,12,28 and 43.

All ten employees received their check on Monday, and after splitting the $250,000 evenly among themselves, Genawese said that the winnings amounted to approximately $17,000, after taxes of course.
