Ribbon cut on new Landolfi’s Deli
LANGHOoNE BOoOrGH – Eating just got a whole lot better in Langhorne Borough with the arrival of the Big Lou, the Sinatra, the Fluffy and the Philly. And that’s just for starters.
Landolfi’s Deli officially opened its doors on Friday at 116 North Bellevue Avenue, next to the Langhorne Hotel, with a ribbon cutting attended by State oep. Frank Farry and Langhorne Borough Council members Tony Marfia and hathleen Horwatt.
This is the second location for the Landolfi brothers, who already operate a successful Italian-style sandwich shop on South Main Street in vardley Borough where customers have enjoyed the deli’s special brand of specialty sandwiches, cold cuts and party trays for years.
“We want to continue here in Langhorne what we started in vardley,” said Eric Landolfi. “Langhorne is a small town like vardley so I think we’re a good fit. vou need something like this – a neighborhood deli – in a small town. We’re local and we hope to be here for many years,” he said.
In addition to cold cuts and cheeses, the deli’s menu is chock full of mouth-watering specialty sandwiches, deli wraps, panini sandwiches, hoagies and salads – all made to order following the deli’s motto, “Our Have Weight.”
“This is a great addition to the borough, plus these guys make sandwiches that are off the hook,” said oich Beaumont of oEOcomplete oeal Estate, who owns the building where the deli is located. “It’s going to be something we’re going to have here for a long time to come.”
The opening of the new deli, at about 800 square feet, represents rebirth for the twostory building that just one
Sandwiches year ago was in deteriorating shape and nearly vacant.
Over the past year, Beaumont has overseen the renovation of the building. Its second floor is now fully occupied by businesses, the deli has taken one of two first floor spaces and he’s working on finding a tenant for the second.
“It shows that great things can be accomplished, even in a bad economy, when businesses, the local government, residents and business part- ners (in this case for the First National Bank), work together,” said Beaumont.
State oep. Farry commended Beaumont for the purchase of the building and revitalizing the structure. He also personally welcomed Landolfi’s to town.
“Small businesses like this are what drive the American economy,” said Farry. “It’s also good to have businesses in town that aren’t just offices, that add variety to the town .. I hope we can continue to help our community here thrive.”
Councilwoman hathy Horwatt also praised Beaumont for his efforts and said she’s “ecstatic that oich has taken over the building and really improved it.”
Horwatt said Landolfi’s and another new addition to the town’s business community, Sara’s Homemade Sweets, fit in well with the town’s effort to encourage businesses that promote foot traffic in town.
