Now starting their fourth season, owners Eric and Patti Koch are excited about being in a larger and more comfortable shop. In the new location, there are four distinct seating areas to enjoy a cone or treat: The inside spacious and relaxing dining room, the rocking chair porch, the Sunset Gazebo (provided by Goshen Timber Frames) and the party picnic tables.


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.
