Quaker Steak & Lube plans move, expansion in Boardman

BOARDMAN

A local restaurant known for its wings and memorabilia is moving to a new location in the township.

Quaker Steak & Lube will move from 7530 Market St. to 435 Boardman-Poland Road — the former Boston Market restaurant at Shops at Boardman Park, said Shannon Baker, a public relations representative for Quaker Steak.

Quaker Steak & Lube is a family-oriented casual dining restaurant with a “Motorabilia”-theme atmosphere featuring race cars, motorcycles, Corvettes and gas-station memorabilia. The company was founded 37 years ago and is based in Sharon, Pa.

The new restaurant is slated to open at the end of summer, and the Market Street location will close at least 30 to 60 days before the new store opens, Baker said.

The Market Street location “is doing well, but the new location is in a bigger footprint to get more guests in, and it will get closer to more of our traditional store model as opposed to an express location,” she added.

The Market Street Quaker Steak & Lube is an express location with carry-out, and the new location will have space for dining in, retail stores and a liquor license for a full-bar. Alcohol represented about 21 percent of sales in 2010, according to a company fact sheet.

“It won’t look identical to Austintown, but very similar,” Baker said.

Good to see a local business doing well and expanding. Should be great getting more people back in the Shops at Bdmn Park!

Ah, I still like going to Sharon because it's the original and I can get a Yuengling

That location, as well as the addition of dining in should prove very lucrative for that store. It's nice to see local businesses expand.

@Valleynative - the Sharon store is still the best!

My only objection is ... The Lube in Ohio STILL cannot sell Yuengling Lager!
