Sister Wives News: Meri Brown’s Utah B&B Launched in 2017
In 2017, the Sister Wives cast member officially launched Lizzie’s Heritage Inn. Even though Kody Brown refused to invest in the business venture, Meri Brown made sure that it was a success. Not only does it typically get five-star reviews, but has won awards. But the COVID-19 pandemic would force Meri to make some big changes, just like many other business owners.
Sister Wives Business Closes
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses were forced to close. Fans always asked Meri if Lizzie’s Heritage Inn was still open and if the global health crisis had affected her revenue. At one point, the reality star confirmed the B&B was still open, but only to essential travelers. She didn’t comment on whether the pandemic had impacted its financials.
Then, it was revealed that the Utah B&B had to close its doors in May 2020. The reality star mentioned on social media that she noticed people weren’t taking precautions while traveling. In a separate post on Instagram, Meri explained her decision.
“In the interest and safety of my staff, in particular my sweet mom who so graciously and lovingly welcomes all our guests on a daily basis, as well as the local southern Utah community, we will not be accepting any bookings until further notice.”
Sister Wives’ Meri Brown Lives in Another State
While the B&B is located in Utah, Meri lives in Flagstaff, Arizona. This has some fans wondering if she is able to run a business being so far away. However, the Sister Wives star previously mentioned that she has staff. In addition, her mother helps out at Lizzie’s Heritage Inn.
So, it’s reasonable to assume that like many business owners, Meri Brown’s employees take care of the day-to-day operations. It’s not really necessary for an owner to be present at all times.
