Joe’s Hots grand re-opening Tuesday in Geneva

The Grand Opening of Joe’s Hots will be on April 1st, 2014. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. Joe’s is located @ 521 Exchange Street in Geneva NY, in the former Linden Exchange Consignment Shop. Joe Marone, who started Joe’s Hots four years ago, expressed excitement to move into Geneva’s vibrant downtown community. “Coming downtown is going to take Joe’s Hots to the next level” Joe exclaimed. “We think that almost all of our existing customers will follow us downtown. We also think that we will gain new converts to our menu of ‘bar-fusion’ fun food”.As a new member of the Geneva Chamber of Commerce board of directors, he is looking forward to being part of the continuing revitalization of downtown Geneva. He believes it will be “super rad to have our skateboarders skate to the store.” Having a downtown restaurant will allow the business to be part of the numerous downtown events, including Geneva Night Out and the Rail Jam.The building, which many years ago housed the local J.C. Penney’s, is owned by David Linger and Wendy Marsh, who are developing the building to include five lake view apartments that will be ready for occupancy in June. Dave Linger stated that: “Joe will be an amazing addition to downtown Geneva. We love his food and cool vibe.”John Hicks, the Executive Director of the Geneva Business Improvement District stated that “the Geneva BID welcomes Joe’s to downtown Geneva. Joe has a strong following and a great menu of comfort foods. We are sure that he will gain many new loyal customers at his Exchange Street restaurant. The public will be very impressed with the restaurant, which was built to meet Joe’s needs. Former customers of the Linden Exchange Consignment Shop won’t believe how the space has been upgraded and improved.”The Linden Exchange Consignment Shop recently moved to its new location at 430 Exchange Street, next door to the Geneva Neighborhood Resource Center.
