The Waffle House at the center of a deadly mass shooting in Antioch has planned to reopen just days after the incident.

Several bouquets of flowers were placed at the location to honor the four killed when a gunman opened fire early Sunday morning. Store owners said they're working to set up a larger memorial space so the public can pay tribute to the victims.

The owners also said they’re hoping to reopen the store on Wednesday; however, that’s not an official date.

A sign has been placed at the front of the restaurant reading, "Thank you everyone for all the thoughts and prayers. #AntiochStrong."  

Taurean C. Sanderlin, Joe R. Perez, DeEbony Groves, and Akilah Dasilva were killed in the shooting. More:  These Are The Victims Of The Antioch Waffle House Shooting
