Denny’s Coming to Downtown Schenectady

Schenectady, N.Y., January 20, 2011 – Schenectady County leaders today announced plans by Denny’s Restaurant to occupy the vacant Friendly’s building located at 60 Nott Terrace in downtown Schenectady.

“We welcome Denny’s to Schenectady County,” said Susan E. Savage, Chair of the Schenectady County Legislature.  “A new business in this building once again will be great for the two colleges and for the neighborhood.”

Denny’s plans to begin renovations following receipt of City approvals for the project. The company has more than 1,600 locations in the United States, Canada, Costa Rica, Guam, Mexico, Honduras, New Zealand and Puerto Rico.  Denny’s has been in operation since 1953.  It is one of the largest full-service restaurant chains with most locations open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Denny’s is well known for its Grand Slam breakfasts as well as other classic favorites.

In Schenectady, Denny’s will lease 60 Nott Terrace, a 4,000 square foot building owned by David Firestein and Robert Raphael.  The building owners were represented in negotiations with Denny’s by Alison Burnside from the Dartmouth Company’s Latham Office.

Denny’s will undertake a complete overhaul of the restaurant over the next 4 to 6 months.  The new Schenectady location will be owned by Mr. Mahmud Kahn and Mr. Suprio Banerjee who also operate Denny’s Restaurants in Wilton and East Greenbush, N.Y. as well as locations in California, Washington and Arizona.

Ray Gillen, Metroplex Chair and Commissioner of Economic Development and Planning in Schenectady County said, “Denny’s fills a key location at the gateway to downtown. We welcome them to Schenectady County.”
