June 11th, 2019 – Amherst, New York – The tradition continues. A legendary family restaurant will open its second location and Concept Construction Corp. has been selected as Construction Manager to build it – “Chefs On the Go” is coming to Amherst.
Louis & Mary Beth Billittier are planning to bring their signature dish, the “World Famous Spaghetti Parm” to the Northtowns. Opened in 1923, the original, iconic Italian family restaurant is located at 291 Seneca Street in Downtown Buffalo and has seen its share of expansions and renovations over the last 95+ years, but now it’s legendary menu items will soon be served at their newest location at 5395 Sheridan Drive in Amherst.
“Chef’s On the Go” has been in the planning stages for a number of years,” says Co-owners Louis J. Billittier and his sister Mary Beth. The new location will primarily be a grab-and-go concept allowing customers to come in, phone in or log in their order from soon to be released app. A Convenient Pick Up window will greet drive up customers who will pick up their food and be on their way. “You can enjoy your meal inside too where we will have seating for 50 to 60 guests who wish to dine in” says Lou. “The menu will feature some of our customer’s favorite entrées, including homemade soups, salads, special recipes, our fresh baked bread, sauce, Italian deserts and of course our famous Spaghetti Parm.” Our guests will experience that distinct “Chef’s family feel,” as the new location will resemble the popular Seneca St. restaurant, complete with red brick interior walls, red and white checkered table linens, Italian dinner music and of course framed photos of some of its most famous guests. In addition, today it was announced that franchise opportunities are now available. For those interested in franchising, please go to www.chefsfranchising.com for more information.
