A restaurant in Maryville, Tennessee is doing big business after posting ‘Guns are Welcome’ signs on the premises which went viral online.

According to WATE (via, Sharma Floyd, the owner of Shiloh Brew and Chew said she can barely keep up with the demand after putting up the signs.

“I’ve now been overwhelmed. I’ve now run out of food twice,” Floyd said.

Floyd said the restaurant has been staying open late, and she plans on hiring seven additional people this week.

“I can honestly say it is the absolute best thing I have done since I’ve been at Shiloh. It’s been incredible for my business.”

As WATE points out, Floyd’s restaurant was actually in danger of going out of business before all the attention started.

“She was almost about to go out of business, and it absolutely turned the business around. I mean the place is packed in there right now,” said customer Billy Kidd.

Members of the Blount County Gun Owners group stopped by the restaurant on Tuesday night.

“Once we saw Sharma was getting so much support we wanted to do the same and support her back so we came, and in about 48 hours we organized this event and everybody just started showing up. It’s amazing, she deserves it,” said founder Seth Jeter.

Floyd told WATE she’s received calls of support from people across the United States for posting the signs.
