The time has finally come to bid adieu to all our fine friends and customers on Sunday, August 2, 2015.
It comes 36 years and 252 days after we started the first Park & Orchard at 216 Park Ave, East Rutherford, NJ. That first day was hard for us, after all we didn't know what we were doing, neither one of us had worked in a restaurant before, but I guess it all worked out for us.
Sunday August 2nd will be harder for us. After all there are so many of you that we won't see any more, share stories, relive all those memorable occasions. It has been so nice to see the outpouring of emails, letters, texts, phone calls and listening to all your stories & thanking us for all we have done and given them over the years.
Well, it is nothing compared to what you have given us, the memories that we have will last us forever, it is overwhelming to just think about what we have done over the past 36+ years.
We would like to wish Dave Madison & Andrew Guarino good luck in the continuing story of Park & Orchard, we hope they will have the same success and loyalty from you that you have shown us.
Again, don't miss us our last day will be Sunday, August 2, 2015.
Thanks again for the memories, we will miss you all.
Buddy & Ken Gebhardt
