Locally Sourced Foods

For many years we’ve been exploring ways to serve the freshest, most flavorful foods to our guests while considering the triple bottom line of profit, environmental sensitivity and social responsibility (See our Sustainable Practices Initiative & Fairness Doctrine.) To these ends, we’re purchasing some of our meats and seafoods differently. We’re also bringing in more and more local produce and artisan-made food products. Learn more about our farm friends here.

Sustainable Practices

The Proximity Hotel and Print Works Bistro is the country’s first hotel to achieve LEED platinum status – the Green Building Council’s highest certification. And that wasn’t even the goal! Quaintance: “The only ambition was, let’s sincerely consider sustainable practices with each of our decisions.” That’s Dennis Quaintance, CEO of Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels. After his children were born, he and his wife considered the legacy they would leave behind and committed to running a sustainable as well as financially sound company. To do so, they used a single question to guide all major decisions. Quaintance: “Is there a sustainable angle that’s practical?” (Read and hear the full story) ~Justin Catanoso

About Us

Now Employee-Owned! After 30 years of operating one of the top-rated hotel and restaurant companies in the South, the founders of Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels (QW) announced on November 17, 2016 that it is now 100% owned by its 600+ staff members. This makes QW one of only a few employee-owned restaurant and hotel companies in the entire country. Learn more.

Mike Weaver, Nancy King Quaintance and Dennis Quaintnace formed this company in April of 1988, and opened their first restaurant in Greensboro on June 5, 1989. They started QW because they are good friends and wanted to be in business together and because we believe that providing the services embodied in our mission will result in a successful company.

Dennis plays point with the operations of Quaintance-Weaver. Mike Weaver claims to be retired, but you can still see him doing positive things in so many parts of our community. Nancy King Quaintance plays roles on our marketing, sales, operations and culinary teams, as well as serves as a coach for some of our key leaders. The company has evolved over the years to become Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants & Hotels and since its inception has opened more restaurants (Lucky 32 in Cary, and the Green Valley Grill in Greensboro) and the O.Henry and Proximity Hotels.

Our Mission

To be of genuine service to our Guests, Fellow Staff Members, Owners (who are solely QW staff members), and the Earth & Her People.

  1. Provide our guests with the highest quality food and drink at a good value.
  2. Ensure that each guest receives prompt, friendly, attentive service by a well-trained service staff in a clean, comfortable restaurant (pleasant acoustics, lighting, temperature and aroma).
  3. Offer an outstanding menu plus an impressive selection of specials.
  4. Provide employment that is rewarding and offers education and opportunity in a fair, diverse and inclusive environment.
  5. Generate profits that: a) afford compensation for those who contribute, b) increase the value of staff members’ ESOP retirement accounts and c) allow QW to grow.
  6. Consider sustainable practices in our social and physical worlds, with all of our decisions. (See our Sustainable Practices Initiative & Fairness Doctrine.)
