Restaurant razed for convenience store

SELINSGROVE — The former Golden Corral Restaurant on Routes 11-15 in Monroe Township has been demolished to make way for a new Turkey Hill convenience store-gas station.

Crews began razing the former eatery at 1980 N. Susquehanna Trail on Monday, clearing the site that’s been vacant for about two years for the new 4,500 square-foot store and gas pumps.

Meanwhile, a short distance away, the former Ruby Tuesday Restaurant has been razed  and construction of a new restaurant, Texas Roadhouse, will soon be underway. The proposed 7,163-square-foot restaurant will have seating for 281 customers and about 25 full-time employees.

The Strip and surrounding area in Monroe Township is experiencing a business boon, with other proposals pending.

Plans for a drive-thru convenience store at 1680 Old Trail Road moved one step closer to development Tuesday night following with unanimous approval from the Monroe Township supervisors following a conditional use hearing to allow.

The approval allows Williamsport businessman Gregory Cendoma to operate a retail business in the village zone.

Cendoma said the drive-thru store will offer staples, such as milk, bread and lottery tickets at a 20-foot, by 45-foot building staffed by three employees. There will be no walk-in customers allowed.

Marzoni’s Brick Oven and Brewing Co. is also moving forward with plans to build a 10,000-square-foot restaurant on a vacant lot next to Sheetz on the Strip. Plans include indoor and outdoor seating for about 300, an on-site brewery and add about 20 new jobs.
