“We operate many restaurants throughout Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey and find that roadside visibility is critical to our success at each location,” explained Stavros Kalaitzoglou, owner of Pat’s Select Pizza | Grill and Asian Garden. “The volume of traffic on York Road that passes Crestridge Center each day is among the highest at any of our other restaurants, and both spaces are extremely visible from the road. We were also attracted to the outstanding demographics surrounding the center that feature high daytime and evening audiences. In addition, we believe it is our responsibility to provide the community with a great place to gather, relax and enjoy their company in a welcoming environment.”
