Scott Bazzano and his mother, Sandy, stand behind the counter of the new Pasquale’s location soon to open in the village of Dannemora on Cook Street.
Pasquale’s Pizzeria will soon open a second location in the village of Dannemora.
The business, based in Peru and owned by Scott Bazzano and managed by his mother, Sandy Bazzano, will open a new location at 1161 Cook St.
Scott said he had been looking into expanding his business for more than a year.
“I was driving through [Dannemora] one day and saw the building and thought I’d give it a shot,” he said. “The building was available and for the right price. It kind of all fell together.”
The process to get the second location off the ground has been one six months in the making, said Scott. Now, as the summer draws to a close, thee Dannemora Pasquale’s readies itself for an opening toward the end of the month.
“It’s been a lot of work,” said Scott as he recently toured the Cook Street building.
The new Pasquale’s will offer the same menu as it’s sister location in Peru, including pizza, wings, hot and cold subs, pasta dishes, calzones, michigans, burgers strombolis and salads.
“It’s going to be more pizzeria style,” said Scott.
The business will offer dine-in seating for approximately 25 people and include a full bar. The business will also deliver orders in a 10 to 12-mile radius.
“That’ll take us into Chazy Lake, down into Cadyville and the back side of Saranac and, of course, all of Dannemora,” said Sandy.
The new business venture is one both Scott and his mother are excited about, he said.
“Dannemora has been in need of a little bar and restaurant, because they haven’t had one in a long time,” said Scott.
Once open for business the Dannemora location will be open seven days a week. Hours of operation will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday.
The business is expected to employ 12 to 15 people.
