PITTSBURGH, PA – March 21, 2014 – Eat’n Park Restaurants will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of its new Banksville restaurant on Thursday, March 20 at 10:30 a.m., 1300 Banksville Road (adjacent to the current Eat’n Park site). Jeff Broadhurst, President and CEO; Brooks Broadhurst, Senior Vice President, Food & Beverage; and Mark Broadhurst, Vice President, Corporate Dining and Retail Development will place ceremonial shovels in the ground to mark the beginning of the construction project. 

The new Banksville restaurant is the latest in the continuing transformation of Eat’n Park. Since 2008, Eat’n Park has remodeled 27 restaurants and introduced 41 pick up windows.

“Eat’n Park restaurants have been part of the Pittsburgh culture for nearly 65 years, and we’re just getting started,” says Jeff Broadhurst. “We’re committed to our region and doing whatever it takes to give our guests the best possible dining experience.”

Among the features of the new Banksville restaurant are a pick up window, spacious lobby and bakery, private dining room, more flexible seating for larger parties and families, and a larger parking lot. The site is being designed to LEED Silver standards with features that include Energy Star appliances, green materials, and induction cooking.

“For so many people, Eat’n Park is part of their life story,” Broadhurst says. “Maybe they met the person they ended up marrying at an Eat’n Park or maybe it’s the Friday night meeting place for a group of high school friends. We want to keep playing that role for generations to come.”

The new Banksville restaurant is expected to open in November 2014.
