Olga’s Kitchen Expanding With 2nd Kalamazoo Location
Olga's Kitchen, which has been a staple at Crossroads Mall for years, is expanding with a second Kalamazoo area location in early 2019.That second location will be at the Corner@Drake shopping center at Stadium Drive and Drake Road. The company expects to add approximately 75 jobs.
Olga's Kitchen, founded by Olga Loizon and her family in 1970, grew primarily in the Detroit region, but fell on hard times and filed for bankruptcy in 2015. The chain has since been purchased by Team Schostak Family Restaurants. According to Olga's website, Loizon, who is in her 90's, still makes "Olga visits" to locations.
According to TSFR, the new location will be 3400 square feet and feature a new design emphasizing the kitchen. Olga's features a gyro like sandwich on a pita like break, and soups and salads.
