TUESDAY, Jan. 26 — Ohio-based deli JB’s Sarnie Shoppe has reached a deal with the Eyde Co. to lease about 2,000 square feet of space on the Knapp's Centre’s first floor. Owner Gareth Jones said he learned about the location from Nick Eyde while looking for a space in Toledo, where the Eyde Co. also leases business properties.
“I traveled up there a few times. It’s a great location,” Jones said of the Knapp’s Centre. “There’s a lot of buzz in downtown Lansing.”
This will be the second JB’s Sarnie Shop location, and Jones plans to open a third location in Toledo this year. The restaurant offers a variety of deli-style sandwiches, as well as soups, salads and smoothies. Construction on the Lansing site should begin in the next few weeks, and Jones hopes to open the shop by April.
