Saline Marketplace Changes

 

continued

Even before his family came to the United States, Sam Ayoub knew he wanted to work in the restaurant business. At age fifteen, he met a friend and future business partner, Haider Bazzi, who was ten, on the plane coming here. "My family was from Lebanon, and Haider's was from Greece, heading to America, the land of opportunity," chuckles Ayoub. That was more than thirty years ago. This September they plan to open their sixth Leo's Coney Island franchise in State Street Crossings.

Leo's serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a wide variety of Coney specials, gyros, moussaka, kabobs, and lots more Greek fare, as well as burgers, soups, salads, sandwiches, and daily specials. The new place will seat 130 with room for an additional fifteen to twenty diners outdoors.

Leo's Coney Island will offer 10 percent teacher and student discounts and a 15 percent discount for seniors. Ayoub is eager to work with local schools on fund-raising. "We are a family restaurant," he emphasizes. He hopes to move with his wife and two young children from Dearborn Heights to the Saline area.

Leo's Coney Island, 6889 State Road, suite P (State Street Crossings), Saline, 944-7100. Mon.-Sat. 6 a.m.-10 p.m., Sun. 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Opening planned for late September.
