New Providence, NJ (Grassroots Newswire) May 8, 2012 – Friendly’s Ice Cream, LLC announces the re-opening of the Friendly’s restaurant at 75 South Street in New Providence, NJ. The restaurant has undergone a complete remodeling, and will re-open with a new look inside and out. The restaurant was franchised by Haiback Enterprises, Inc. in 2004.
“Everything about the restaurant is new and fresh,” said Will Haiback, Franchise owner of the Friendly’s restaurant in New Providence. “We’ve brightened up our décor with new wallpaper and brighter paint colors, new carpeting, and new lighting. We’ve remodeled our restrooms and the outside of the store features a whole new look, too. We can’t wait to welcome back our customers into this comfortable and fun new restaurant.”
The new look serves as a backdrop to the same great food, service and ice cream treats that have always been the hallmark of Friendly’s restaurants. The remodeled restaurant opens to the public on Wednesday, May 9. Restaurant hours are 8:00 am to 10:00 pm Sunday through Thursday and 8:00 am to 11:00 pm on Friday and Saturday.
“The re-opening of the New Providence restaurant reflects Friendly’s ongoing commitment to our loyal customers and the communities in which we have restaurants,” said Jim Sullivan, chief development officer at Friendly’s Ice Cream, LLC. “We’ll continue to renovate and re-invigorate our restaurants, so that families can continue to count on us for a great meal at a great price in family-friendly surroundings.”
“I grew up five minutes from the original New Providence Friendly’s, and would frequently ride my bike to the restaurant. Now, I’m a business owner in the community, with 20 years of experience as a restaurant owner. I am committed to the community and will continue to be involved with the area schools, churches, libraries and senior centers,” said Will Haiback.
Will Haiback owns four additional Friendly’s franchises in the surrounding area.
