LAFAYETTE, La. - A rough start for a Lafayette business that is determined to open today.

Deano's and Deano's South pizza restaurant were both hit by lightning Thursday night.

Owner Tim Metcalf said in a Facebook post.

"Our Bertrand restaurant lost all its kitchen lights last night, we were able to put a portable lights to get through the night because I have the best staff in town and the electrician came this morning and fixed it. One of South's parking lot poles got hit, sent a surge into the building, a couple of computer issues and some circuit breakers are being replaced today. The restaurants are several miles apart and got hit simultaneously!"

Both restaurants are open and ready for business.
