The Billboard south of Rochester gave us all hope. It said Perkins South Opening Soon! But when? When was what we didn't know. At the end of March, Troy Dunken wrote,

I spotted a Perkins billboard that said "Re-Opening Soon". I'm not sure when they'll re-open but I hope some of the people that unexpectedly lost their jobs get hired back.

Well, now we know the opening date!

Perkins South, which, along with Perkins North, closed up tight last November, will reopen in June. The Rochester Post Bulletin's Jeff Kiger is reporting it'll be a corporate owned store (as predicted by Troy!),

"I just wanted to reach out and confirm that the reopening of Perkins Restaurant and Bakery located at 1818 S. Broadway is definite," wrote Perkins Communication Manager Vivian Brooks in an email this afternoon. "We anticipate the reopening of the restaurant to be on or about June 10 and we could not be more excited."

So, get ready, the huge American Flag is going to wave over Perkins once again!
