EATíN PARK CELEBRATES GROUNDBREAKING FOR NEW STREETSBORO RESTAURANT
Eat'n Park, a casual, neighborhood dining chain is set to break ground at 9436 State Route 14, with a 6,425-square-foot restaurant that will employ more than 125 team members when the company begins operation in fall 2004, according to Kevin O'Connell, senior vice president of marketing, Eat'n Park Restaurants.
The family dining chain is known for providing an unexpectedly high quality dining experience at an unexpectedly low price. The average cost of a meal at Eat'n Park is around $6 and guests can choose from more than 150 menu items, according to O'Connell.
"Eat'n Park is known for delivering high-quality meals at affordable prices," said O'Connell. "Our continued growth and commitment to the region includes our focus on developing our brand in the Streetsboro area, including the addition of 125 team members at highly competitive wages and benefits."
The Streetsboro location will be the company's 78th restaurant across the tri-state region, and its 11th in north-eastern Ohio. It will feature a bountiful Breakfast and Fruit Buffet in the morning, and a Soup and Salad Bar full of market-fresh vegetables for lunch and dinner.
The menu also features a variety of salads and entrees ranging from T-bone steak, Asiago Shrimp Scampi, and Nantucket Cod to Black Angus Burgers, as well as an entire selection of smaller portions available for seniors, called Seniors Especiallyô. Guests can enjoy high-quality meals at affordable prices 24 hours a day
The new restaurant will offer a wide variety of amenities for guests, including the stylish Eat'n Park Café - a convenient, European-influenced environment located in the front of the restaurant and featuring signature espresso milkshakes, lattes, chai tea, and other specialty coffee drinks. Here, guests can order their selection at the register, grab a quick bite to eat or relax at one of the contemporary café tables, or in a high-back leather seating area.
Eat'n Park also offers a wide selection of fresh-baked premium breads, pies, and desserts, such as the award-winning Grilled Stickies a` la Mode, made with two slices of sweetened cinnamon loaf grilled in butter and topped with vanilla ice cream and a warm honey sauce. All breads, pies, and desserts are fresh-baked right in the restaurant and are available for purchase throughout the day.
According to O'Connell, Eat'n Park is also known for its commitment to the community. The company, established in Pittsburgh in 1949, has been a committed supporter of charitable causes and is particularly focused on benefiting families and children. For example, team members from across the chain have raised more than $5 million for free care funds at children's hospitals in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia over the recent years.
