Diner in Village of Corfu moving to new location near Pembroke High School
Linda's Diner in the Village of Corfu is moving.
The Genesee County Planning Board approved a proposal submitted by Pembroke resident Linda Richley to convert a single-family residence at 8783 Allegheny Road into a restaurant.
The location is just south of Pembroke High School.
The new Linda's Diner will be build inside a 1,176-square-foot, ranch-style home built in 1959.
Richley said this morning that it was her son and daughter who encouraged her to move.
The location is strategically located near the busy intersection of routes 5 and 77, close to Yancey's Fancy cheese shop and Pembroke HS, Richley said.
Her daughter would like to eventually add ice cream to the menu and her son already operates a BBQ catering business, so the location would give him a place to set up and cook pulled pork and ribs when he isn't at a client's location.
"It's more their idea than mine," Richley said, but she is looking forward to the family owning its own location after renting for all these years.
The plans approved by the planning board call for 25 parking spaces on the lot.
Richley purchased the 1.1-acre parcel from the Town of Pembroke, which acquired it when they bought lland for the town park.
I think that is a great move!!!! I wish you much success!!!!
