New Chefette coming to Newton
This new branch will move the number of Chefette locations up to 15 in total following the closure of the Fairchild Street branch in The City and the opening of the Lancaster St. James branch slated for summer 2017.
The announcement was made via a press release from Managing Director, Ryan Haloute which stated the company is still heavily focused on the Lancaster branch but phase one of the Newton branch has gotten off the ground.
"We have begun phase 1 of our Newton project which is to build a road and required services off of the main roadway at Newton. We are still designing the scope of the Chefette Restaurant to be situated there and therefore we will continue to focus our efforts on the completion of our new Lancaster location in St. James which is expected to be open before the end of Summer 2017 and then revert back to phase 2 of Newton, which is the construction of our Chefette Restaurant which is expected to be opened in the beginning of 2019.”
He also stated the company is committed to reinvesting profits back into the local economy to help create more jobs and encourage further development. At present, the company employs 850 workers.
