Junkers has expansion plans
The little shop on Main Street that opened with coffee, knickknacks and T-shirts three years ago now plans to expand its restaurant offerings outside.
Junkers, which began offering subs and wrap-style sandwiches in January 2016, will add outdoor seating within a month, say owners Richard and Mandi Button.
That seating will be offered under a shade canopy Richard has built and will install in the grassy area he leveled and built up at the corner of Main and Spokane Streets in Grand Coulee, about a block off Midway Avenue.
With the canopy, Richard said, it should be more visible to people from the main road through Grand Coulee and draw more traffic to Main Street.
Eventually, they plan to move Junkers into the space he currently occupies with his graphics business, ButtonIt, giving the restaurant more windows and the space next to the outdoor seating.
Mandi Button said Thursday that business at Junkers has been picking up as the weather warms up, and two new sandwiches have proved popular. The shop will add shaved ice and ice cream treats to gear up for kids and tourism.
