North Utica Friendly’s To Close
Another popular Utica eatery will soon be closing its doors. The Friendly’s restaurant on Genesee Street in North Utica will close January 22nd. According to the Utica Observer -Dispatch the closing is the result of its lease being terminated by the property owner. However the news isn’t all bad.Since there are other Friendly’s locations in the Utica-Rome area the employees of the North Utica restaurant are being offered positions at those. Too bad, I enjoyed stopping at this Friendly’s for ice cream on hot summer days.
