The Hellertown Diner is under new ownership.
Zonia Sibri-Quinde, owner of Sibri’s Restaurant in Bethlehem, recently purchased the Hellertown Diner at 29 Main Street with an SBA loan arranged by Jeffery Barber of Lehigh Financial Group LLC, Allentown.
Sibri-Quinde said she had been looking to expand Sibri’s, a family-owned and operated restaurant located at 147 E. Broad Street, Bethlehem, because it’s often crowded, and parking is an issue. When she learned the Hellertown Diner was for sale, she said she thought it was a perfect opportunity and made an offer.
Sibri-Quinde plans to keep both restaurants open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and to add some customer favorite items from Sibri’s to the Hellertown Diner’s menu.
“Our customers love our eggs benedict and all the kinds of waffles we serve. They also love our pulled pork and homemade crabmeat items,” Sibri-Quinde said. “Hopefully, people will come to both places to continue to enjoy our food.”
Sibri-Quinde said she plans to renovate the 144-seat diner which will remain open during the construction.
Sibri-Quinde was represented by Attorney Joe Piperato. Her real estate agent was Marta Gandia of Cassidon Realty Better Homes & Gardens in Bethlehem. The listing agent was Jessica Vooz of The Jessica Vooz Group at Keller Williams Real Estate of Bethlehem.
The lender was 44 Business Capital, a direct small business lending division of Berkshire Bank.
