Restaurant Orgy Continues, Perkins Eyes State College Return

First IHOP, then Quaker Steak and Lube, now Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery is getting back into the State College restaurant scene.

The Centre Daily Times is reporting that Perkins has filed a preliminary plan to College Township to open up a 132-seat restaurant next to Eastview Plaza on Benner Pike.

Perkins Restaurant had been a mainstay in State College for 17 years before closing its location almost a year ago on S. Atherton St. The owners promised an eventual return, and it looks like that could be happening within the next year if the plan is approved.

It seems like every week now we’re announcing another restaurant opening in State College. Perkins has a presence in virtually every major location in Pennsylvania so it’s great to see State College getting back into the game. I can’t speak for the non-desert food, but I know the peanut butter silk pie is delicious.
