Long Pond, Latta area to be new site of Tim Hortons

Plans are in the works for a new Tim Hortons coffee shop to open in Greece.

The restaurant, planned for the Latta and Long Pond area, would open in the new Walgreens plaza. A Canandaigua National Bank & Trust is currently being built, Walgreens has recently opened.

A public hearing on the special use permit for Tim Hortons was held Tuesday, June 22. One neighbor was there to oppose the plan because of the views of the restaurant from her home, and the sounds and noises that would be emitted.

Bob Bender, property manager for Tim Hortons, said that new technology would help drown out noise from the restaurant. A speaker system will push out white noise that will coincide with the noise coming from the site — be it the drive-thru, a loud muffler or loud voices.

Really all the ideals that are there, simplity, gentleness and trustworthy. And we really try to create an atmosphere that represents the environment of a ranger's home. Comfortable, inviting. We hope people will come in as they are no matter where they are coming from and be able to relax and enjoy great service."

85 new jobs coming to West Ridge Road

A new Longhorn Steakhouse at 1837 W. Ridge Road, slated to open in late March, is expected to create 85 jobs in Greece.

The Greece location will be the third to open its doors to Rochester after the first Longhorn restaurant made its way to Henrietta in 2009 and another to Victor last year.

The restaurants in Henrietta and Victor have done “very well for us,” said Tara Gray, Longhorn manager of media and communications.  "We're excited about coming to the Greece market. It's a very vibrant area.”

The menu’s mainstay is Western-inspired steaks on the grill —  but it also branches out to include a reasonably extensive listing of other dishes: Longhorn salmon (hand-cut salmon fillet seasoned with a bourbon marinade), baby back ribs, parmesan crusted chicken, fresh salads, soups, hearth-baked bread and a slew of desserts.

Once the doors officially open, the restaurant will remain open seven days a week: 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
