Lenny Radziewicz and Penny Folino's new restaurant is now open for business at 94 Center Church Road.
Since Penny’s Diner closed its doors, manager Penny Folino said she’s been inundated with emails from customers asking when she’d be bringing her culinary expertise back to the McMurray area. They missed the diner atmosphere, Folino said. The wait is now over for those customers because Folino and her boyfriend, Lenny Radziewicz, have opened a new restaurant called Center Plate—located at 94 Center Church Rd. The eatery has been open for just six days, but Folino said it has debuted to “rave reviews.” Radziewicz owns the establishment and Folino is the manager—and brings her years of cooking skills to the spot, which she describes as a “café bistro, Greek-style restaurant.” Open from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6:30 a.m…

InLineAdz plans to hire 50 sales people in the Greater Pittsburgh area alone.
For less than a cup of coffee a day, businesses can join the InLineAdz network, said John Hancherick, co-owner and vice president of sales. Hancherick has been a Peters resident for 22 years. The branding-centered company is an opportunity for local businesses to increase their business activity, promote their brand and attract more local customers, according to Hancherick. The form of passive branding and advertising is via a 32”-40” flat screen TV—silent, and placed in high-foot traffic businesses where people “wait for service.” The strategy, coupled with the company’s fully-customizable software, allows InLineAdz to have total control over the content, the frequency of rotation, remote access and the ability to import live feeds of …
