New restaurant owners move into old firehouse

9:57 am November 29th, 2012


Kevin and Brenna Byington, pictured with their daughter Kendahl, 9 months, are new owners of FireHouse Pizzeria and Grill in downtown Kuna, formerly MatteeO’s Firehouse Café.

Kevin and Brenna Byington looked in Meridian, Middleton, Eagle, Ontario and other Idaho towns as they searched for the right place to establish the restaurant they wanted to open.

Ultimately, the pair decided to open up shop in the former fire station at 271 Avenue B in downtown Kuna.

“We just kept coming back to this one,” said Kevin Byington, who recently bought a house and moved his family to Kuna. “A lot of things about the community just kept telling us this was the perfect location.”

And while the Byingtons are making some big changes inside, Matthew O’Connor, who’s been running MatteeO’s Firehouse Café in that location since summer 2011, is making some big changes of his own.
