A Hagerstown restaurant will soon see the impossible become the possible.

Since 2011, Chef Robert Irvine has transformed restaurants, and some may argue, owners’ lives, with his Food Network reality show, “Restaurant: Impossible.”

The mission is simple: Make over a restaurant in need of some serious tender loving care within two days and on a budget of $10,000.

“Restaurant: Impossible” Associate Producer John Williams has confirmed that Irvine and his crew, which includes a designer and contractor, will be in Hagerstown Saturday and Sunday to transform the Georgia Boy Cafe at Park Circle near Hagerstown City Park.

In “Restaurant: Impossible,” Irvine does more than just redesign the restaurant, he often tackles the menu, trains the staff in proper customer service or teaches basic restaurant skills to those who are in need of his expertise.

In some cases, Irvine has even helped to repair fractured relationships often caused by the strains of a struggling business.

The show ends on Sunday with the big reveal to the owners and diners.

Those wishing to dine at Georgia Boy Cafe can make reservations at the cafe by calling the restaurant at 240-329-2232. Williams said there are 25 tables available.

Williams said the show is also seeking volunteers to help with the design. Anyone interested can contact Williams at jwilliams@shootersinc.com.

The show is scheduled to air Wednesday, Nov. 20.

“Restaurant: Impossible” airs at 9 p.m. Wednesdays on the Food Network.
