FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Preparations for Tuesday's inauguration of Kentucky's next governor are underway at the Capitol.

At some point during the jam-packed day, soon-to-be governor Andy Beshear and his team will have to eat. That’s where some local restaurants come in.

“Oh it's nerve wracking of course. It's the new governor,” said Main Street Diner Co-Owner Megan Farney.

Main Street Diner is providing fresh biscuits that will be served as a part of the inauguration festivities along with ham from Rick's White Light Diner and a few items from other local spots.

“Being in downtown Frankfort it's definitely an honor to be a part of something like this,” said Main Street Diner Co-Owner Megan Allan.

Allan and Farney, along with their restaurant’s other co-owners Jacob Allan and John Moschella, will be up bright and early preparing.

We’re told the biscuits will be homemade and fresh.

Besides just making the biscuits, they're also expecting a lot more people to be coming through their doors with the inauguration parade crowds expected on Tuesday.

“We're set up, we've got a quick express out window where we can get people in and out and everything. But we're looking forward to a large crowd. So we'll be open, ready,” said Megan Allan.

Allan says people have welcomed their diner, which just opened a few weeks ago, with open arms.

Now they're excited to welcome the governor's team, and take part in a historic day.

The parade is set to run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
