Leo’s Coney Island coming to Cascade Twp.

Leo's Coney Island will be located in Cascade Crossings. (June 2, 2015)

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A popular metro Detroit restaurant known for its Coney dogs and Greek specialties is expanding to West Michigan.

Leo’s Coney Island is slated to open in late July 2015 at 6080 28th Street in Cascade Crossings.

Officials say more than 50 jobs will be created from servers to cooks to management.

“Grand Rapids has one of the best economies in Michigan and across the nation,” said Bill Krall, owner/operator of Leo’s Coney Island. “Not only did we see this as an opportunity to tap into a booming market but also the chance to give a new community a dining option it currently doesn’t have.”

While they are currently focused on the expansion in the general Grand Rapids area, Krall hopes to have locations scattered throughout West Michigan’s major corridors in the near future.

The first Leo’s Coney Island was established in 1972 by brother duo Peter and Leo Stassinopoulos, both immigrants from Greece, in Southfield, Michigan.
