emony Fri­day to make it of­fi­cial.

Jeff Kap­pus, owner of the res­tau­rant lo­cated in the Per­ryville Sta­tion Shop­ping Cen­ter, said he chose the Havre de Grace cus­tomers, where he also owns and op­er­ates a Sub­way.

“Peo­ple were com­ing across the bridge. They have said to me we need one

Com­mis­sioner Alan Fox, rep­re­sent­ing the town of Per­ryville, wel­comed the new busi­ness, which he said had na­tional brand recog­ni­tion.

“Any busi­ness that comes to Per­ryville and puts down roots is go­ing to do well,” Fox said.

Jake Porter, gen­eral man­ager, ac­knowl­edged the town also has a Sub­way at Route 222 near the In­ter­state 95 in­ter­change.

“But it doesn’t have the con­ve­nience we have for fam­i­lies,” Porter said.

Al­ready the staff no­ticed they get traf­fic at their Route 40 lo­ca­tion from schools, Perry Point VA Med­i­cal Cen­ter and folks on the road tak­ing their chil­dren to af­ter-school ac­tiv­i­ties. The res­tau­rant also of­fers plenty of din­ing space.

Kap­pus said the store added more than a dozen jobs to the area as well.

Bon­nie Grady, pres­i­dent and CEO of the Ce­cil County Cham­ber of Com­merce, said the county is fi­nally be­ing rec­og­nized as a prime lo­ca­tion for busi­ness and in­dus­try. we’ve ever been. Look at the big con­struc­tion project hap­pen­ing up the road,” Grady said, re­fer­ring to con­struc­tion of the Lidl gro­cery dis­tri­bu­tion fa­cil­ity at the Prin­ci­pio Busi­ness Park. “Things are hap­pen­ing in Ce­cil County.”

Grady said Ce­cil County is “strate­gi­cally placed be­tween Washington, D.C. and Philadel­phia and Bos­ton and Rich­mond, Va.”

“Busi­nesses are find­ing out we’re the only green space in a ma­jor growth corridor,” Grady said.

Op­er­at­ing hours are 7 a.m. un­til 9 p.m. Mon­day through Thurs­day, Fri­day 7 a.m. un­til 10 p.m., Satur­day 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sun­day 9 a.m. un­til 8 p.m.
