As he stands in the doorway of what was the sausage factory he’s owned since 1969, Robert Fason seems a bit more at ease than you expect the owner of a recently burned down business to be.
“It’s just another part of our history,” Fason says about losing his business to a fire. “This may be a blessing in disguise.”
Fason’s Sausage in Greensboro blazed for hours Tuesday night before being extinguished around midnight. Roy Ward, an employee of Fason’s for 14 years, said the building was still salvageable at that point.
