JAMESTOWN – More details will be announced Monday regarding the development of the Former Friendly’s restaurant in Brook Square.
Last week the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency discussed plans for a new restaurant and approved a $55,000 for JTOWN DJF, LLC – doing business as Jimmy’s Family Restaurant.
However, the name of the individuals involved with the LCC was not provided, but IDA director Mark Geise did say the developer indicated a plan to rehire as many Friendly’s employees as possible, including at least one of the managers.
Local media received an email from Vince DeJoy, also Jamestown Director of Development, via JtownDJF saying a formal announcement regarding the restaurant would be made Monday at 2 p.m.
The Friendly’s restaurant in Jamestown closed abruptly in April and was part of an estimated two dozen closings in several states.
