Tomorrow will mark the one-year anniversary of the Jeffersonville Diner, and the owners and staff are excited to show off all that has changed in just 365 days. From renovations inside and out, giving the location a total makeover, to the new salad bar and expanded menu, there is much to see at this local hotspot.
On Saturday, Oct. 4 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., the diner will be a blur of activities and specials welcoming the community and its families to enjoy all it has to offer. The diner, which is located along Egypt Road, has something most diners do not: a fresh menu.
“Everything here is fresh, and never frozen,” explained Tina Lucas, the manager of Jeffersonville Diner. “Everything is made fresh to order.”
A rare occurrence in the diner industry, the Jeffersonville Diner does not freeze any of its foods.
“Even our homemade soups are made fresh, daily,” said Lucas.
Each day, the restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. With breakfast served all day, it is a popular spot for off-peak hours, for diners that enjoy a brunch or late lunch.
This Saturday, the 12-hour celebration will include plenty to entertain its guests and visitors.
“We will have Spiderman here,” said Lucas. “We also will have kids’ pumpkins to paint.”
“A lot of the community organizations will be in and out, all day long,” noted Lucas, who said representatives from the Army Reserves, local fire stations and local EMS are among those attending.
All day long, the owner will also be offering 25 percent off all menu items, a sale he will continue through the month of October in order to celebrate the anniversary. Lucas said the discount is just one way the restaurant hopes to celebrate the local community.
“We buy local produce,” she said. “We want to help out, to give back.”
Additionally, the diner offers discounts year-round for those that are senior citizens, a veteran or in the military. The anniversary celebration will also include several nonprofit organizations, providing community representatives a space to promote and share their news and happenings.
Nonprofits like David’s Drive will be there with a table and bracelets. The organization seeks underwear, socks and T-shirts in order to donate them to the Coatesville Veterans’ Hospital. A newly formed Kacie’s Cause will be at the event, informing residents of an ever-growing heroin problem in the area. Other tables will inform residents about diabetes and controlling the illness.
Jeffersonville Diner will soon be adding to their already growing menu with a special dietary section.
“We want to cater to those with diabetes and high blood pressure,” said Lucas. The new menus will have carb-counting and specially prepared meals, suitable for illness control.
During Saturday’s celebration, local fire companies will also bring trucks for area youth to explore form 3 to 6 p.m.
From open to close, the caring staff at Jeffersonville Diner has worked hard to prepare for this one-year celebration, and they hope that members of the public will join them in commemorating the first year under new ownership.
All ages are welcome to the events on Saturday, which will run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Jeffersonville Diner, located at 236 Egypt Road in Jeffersonville.
