TONAWANDA, N.Y. — A Buffalo favorite is expanding once again!
Rachel's Mediterranean Grill is hosting a grand opening for its newest location in Tonawanda on Sheridan Drive and Delaware Road on Thursday, July 7.
The official ribbon-cutting ceremony starts at 10:30 a.m. and is hosted by the Ken-Ton Chamber of Commerce.
The celebration will feature food, giveaways and items donated by the Sabres and the bills - plus an appearance by some Buffalo Sabres!
The fast-casual restaurant was founded in Buffalo by the Khoury Family and has quickly grown to 15 locations throughout Western New York and Texas.
Rachels' management says they plan to continue to expand not only in Buffalo, but also Rochester and Syracuse.
"Our initial plan was to travel up the I-90 as the demand increased, and now, we're getting requests from all over as we're growing," said Brandon Guzda, Director of Operations for Rachel's. "It's nowhere near done yet."
They were named Company of the Year by the Buffalo Business First last December.
