A chain sub restaurant prepares for a ribbon cutting, while at the same time looking forward to a major partnership with a local bakery.
Penn Station East Coast Subs is a national chain, but the one near Valley View Mall is the first to open in our area.
One of the co-owners tells us opening in Roanoke is a big deal for the restaurant, especially when it comes to their bread.
"Maple Leaf makes bread in Roanoke. People who've worked there for 20 years who have never been able to eat their own bread and have came in and tried it," said co-owner Michael Mazzarese.
Penn Station East Coast Subs will cut the ribbon on their new Valley View location Thursday at 10:45 a.m.
