Big Bats Cafe is in growth mode, planning a Nov. 23 opening for its latest expansion franchise in Hagerstown at the former Applebee's on Wesel Boulevard, a company official said Wednesday.

This will be the third Big Bats Cafe. The first opened in 1997 on Kent Island, Md., and one opened in Easton, Md., in spring 2004, Garland said.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN, Pa. -- Hours of swinging hammers and hanging drywall build up an appetite as much as they do a house. On the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" set, that's where people such as Delane Balafoutas become involved. The owner of the Copper Kettle in Chambersburg, Pa., served hot food Tuesday morning while also checking on her restaurant and her daughter, who was in labor. "When we prepare our food, we prepare for three to four hundred," said Balafoutas, who has been stocking the VIP tent with her husband, Ted, and their employees.

ROUZERVILLE, Pa. - Bob Backer remembers enthusiasm felt in Rouzerville just before Wal-Mart and Lowe's came to town two years ago. "Once we heard they were coming, it kind of re-engerized the area," said Backer, president of the Rouzerville Business Association and a 25-year Rouzerville businessman. "I think that our growth began when we started the things with Wal-Mart and Lowe's," said Ann Backer, his wife and fellow RBA board member. The big box stores have been strategically placed to usher in an era of commercial development and draw shoppers from out of state, according to Washington Township (Pa.)

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Come October, one more thing will separate Waynesboro and Honolulu - an Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar. Construction is scheduled to begin next week on the restaurant in the Rouzerville Commons shopping center, and the target opening is in October, a company spokeswoman said in an e-mail Thursday. Sixteen countries and every state except Hawaii are home to at least one of the more than 1,800 Applebee's restaurants, Vikki Watson said. "The staff for a typical restaurant consists of one general manager, one kitchen manager, two or three assistant managers and approximately 60 hourly associates," Watson said.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Obstacles tying up the development of an Applebee's Neighborhood Bar & Grill outside Waynesboro were mostly cleared Monday with the Washington Township Supervisors' decision to sign an agreement with Echo Real Estate/Development of Pittsburgh. "Does this mean I get preferential treatment for reservations?" Supervisor Carroll Sturm joked when the supervisors unanimously approved the restaurant plans nearly three months after they were first submitted. The 5,130-square-foot restaurant in Rouzerville Commons became entangled in a dispute between the township and Echo Development regarding fees imposed on two parcels of land on Pa. 16. The supervisors repeatedly tabled the restaurant plans pending an agreement regarding those two parcels - one designated as the future home of a Sheetz and the other with no definite plans.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A proposed Applebee's Neighborhood Bar & Grill outside Waynesboro has become tied up in a dispute between the developer of the Rouzerville Commons shopping center and the Washington (Pa.) Township Supervisors. The supervisors' vote on the 5,130-square-foot restaurant has been tabled for the second time - now because the developer refused to sign an amendment to a roadway agreement for other parcels in the shopping center. Bruce Haney of Echo Real Estate/Development of Pittsburgh indicated at the supervisors' meeting Monday that he did not have a problem with the fees imposed on him through the amendment.
