From the Queens Courier:
With the clock ticking down the final hours of the kosher-deli institution’s 15-year run in the Bay Terrace shopping center, a deal was crafted between landlord Cord Meyer Development, Ben’s and Panera Bread, which had been slated to occupy the space.
“This is a great Christmas/Hanukkah gift for our customers and staff,” said Scott Singer, President of Ben’s Restaurant Group. “I have a signed lease extension in my hand, and my employees have their jobs.” The lease was to expire on Saturday, January 31.
