Denny’s, which calls itself “America’s Diner,” has leased space in Brooklyn for its first store in the New York City outer boroughs.
Sabre Real Estate Group LLC arranged the deal.
The always-open chain leased the highly visible former Galaxy Diner at 805 Pennsylvania Ave., between Linden Boulevard and Stanley Ave. in the East New York section of Brooklyn.
“This is a great location for Denny’s. It’s a rare opportunity to find a freestanding former restaurant building with parking in such a dense neighborhood in Brooklyn,” said Greg Batista, a director at Sabre, Denny’s exclusive real estate broker for New York City and Long Island. He represented Denny’s and the landlord, Brooklyn-based Renaissance Realty Group.
The 3,000-square-foot freestanding building has parking for 20 cars. The Spartanburg, SC-based chain expects to open the new restaurant, which will seat about 125 patrons, by Jan. 1.
Sabre is seeking other locations for Denny’s in Manhattan, the Outer Boroughs and on Long Island.
