(BINGHAMTON, NY) -- Broome County Executive Debbie Preston, the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce and Elsie’s Diner General Manager George Slavik III today held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at Elsie’s Diner, located in the Greater Binghamton Transportation Center.
“Elsie’s is an outstanding addition to the Greater Binghamton Transportation Center, a delicious dining experience for our entire community, and convenient meal option for those traveling through our region,” said Broome County Executive Debbie Preston. “Running a business is best left to the professionals; not government. We’re proud to welcome the Slavik family and Elsie’s staff to the Greater Binghamton Transportation Center, and we look forward to many years of great success and tremendous food.”
“We named Elsie’s Diner after our mother and grandmother, Elsie. We are keeping her memory alive with homemade recipes that we know you will love as much as we do,” said Elsie’s Diner General Manager George Slavik III. “We’re happy to be working with Broome County on this mutually beneficial and rewarding opportunity.”
Elsie’s is a traditional American Diner, specializing in breakfast foods, sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs.
