Burger King coming to town
By RICHARD F. BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro
WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Bulldozers are tearing up the ground under what used to be Pugh's Petcetera at 1617 E. Main St. to make room for a new Burger King restaurant - the first fast-food chain restaurant to be built in Washington Township in more than a quarter of a century, according to a township official.
"It's in a good location between two shopping centers, Wayne Heights Mall and Bradley Center," said Jerry Zeigler, township code enforcement officer.
"It's going to be welcome. People in the township need more choices. We have a growing population and this will provide more variety," he said.
The McDonald's restaurant at 302 E. Main St. in Waynesboro was the first fast-food restaurant to open in the area, Zeigler said. It was followed by Hardees in front of Wayne Heights Mall in Washington Township in the mid-1970s he said.
