The "world's friendliest restaurant" is not moving to Colorado.

Tim's Place in Albuquerque, owned by a young man with Down's Syndrome, was called the world's friendliest restaurant because everyone got a hug.

The restaurant closed in December because Tim and his family were planning to relocate to Denver.  

However, Tim's parents have written an internet message that says Tim and his girlfriend have broken up and the move to Denver is on hold.

Keith and Jeannie Harris parents wrote, "We are currently back in the planning mode to determine our next best moves for Tim’s professional life.  In the interim, Tim continues to travel extensively on behalf of his non-profit, Tim’s Big Heart Foundation.  Tim is very busy and in high demand as a motivational and inspirational  speaker.  In 2015 he delivered over 30 keynote addresses in four countries.  In 2016, he’s on track to do more events than in 2015."
