Syosset Maintains Business Revival Momentum

How can the town continue the healing the business district?

Panera Bread opened a new franchise on Jericho Turnpike in Syosset Wednesday. Town and county officials happily congratulated staff as they rejoiced in knowing there was one less vacant store front in town.

Over the past few years, businesses large and small have begun a trial and error trying to find out what stores will survive on the busy road. Panera's predecessors, Dom & Luigi's Smokehouse, was a popular destination but closed last year.

What kinds of businesses should open on Jericho Turnpike? Are well established chains like Panera Bread the only type of business that can survive on Jericho? Is there any room for entrepreneurs to experiment with new and unique spots?

I would like to see an Applebees or Olive Garden come to Syosset/Woodbury. We are a people who eat out often and would keep those franchises hopping. They would, of course, be located on Jericho Turnpike.

Applebees is ten minutes away at the end of South Oyster Bay Road in Hicksville? And who would go to Olive Garden when there are fifteen real Italian restaurants at all price points in Jericho/Syosset/Woodbury? We need a quality, moderately priced family joint ala Singletons (516 is close!). Something not so corporate, with food that doesn't come out of a company freezer truck.

We should all support locally owned businesses; they need us.

Gio agrees with Felice.
