CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 30 - June 5, 2003 - 33 The Kannery opens restaurant/deft doors in Rehoboth By Erik Sumption Fans of the Delaware Sub Shop longing for a taste of the old days are in for a treat with the opening of the Kannery at the sub shop's former location in Rehoboth Beach. The dell/restaurant had its grand opening Monday, May 27, and new owners, Greg Williams and Stan Mark, have brought over 80 years of combined restaurant ex- perience to help feed visitors and locals stacked sandwiches, subs, salads, Italian specialties and homemade desserts. "We've got talented people that put out a real- ly good product," states Williams. Originally from Linthicum Heights, Md., both men quit their previous jobs and sold their busi- nesses and moved to the beach with the intent of opening their own place. "One of my goals in life was to have a small restaurant or care," admits Mark. As partners Williams uses his experience as a former owner of a water restoration service and car- pet and upholstery cleaning serv- ice to run the business end while Mark contributes years of restau- rant experience to the kitchen. Back in January, a couple months after the men relocated to Rehoboth Beach, the spot on the corner of First Street and Wilm- ington Avenue became available to lease and the two men jumped on it. Both know the significance and history of the location. "We want to capture a little bit of that old memory," says Williams. There was a lot of work to be done and both went straight to it; cleaning, plumbing and painting just to prepare the shop in time for a summer opening. "It was a long battle," states Williams. The restaurant now has a take out section with counter seating overlooking the street and an adjacent room with tables and chairs able to accommodate the summer crowds looking to escape the heatand grab a hearty meal. One unique aspect of the Kan- nery is the decorations which is the origin of the name. Mark is a collector of decorative tin cans from all over the world that con- tained items such as toffee, tea and biscuits. A large portion of his collection of over 200 lines the walls of the restaurant. The name Cannery was already taken so Kannery was chosen, but it's good karma according to Williams since his previous upholstery cleaning business was called Klean Karpets. "t guess I'm des- tined to be with Ks," he says. One vital part of the deft is the experience Williams' mother Do- lores brings in. Her background in Italian cooking has been added to give an authentic taste to the lasagna, spaghetti, meatballs, manicotti and sauces. "I wanted a place that would in- corporate my mother into the structure," states Williams. "This was a natural extension for her." Her lasagna is premium according to Williams. It is three layers of ground Angus chuck beef, top quality ham, cheese and home- made sauce all at an affordable price. What the new business owners really want to be known for, though, is their stacked sandwich- es. They are piled high with over one half pound of roast beef, turkey, ham or corned beef with a choice of four breads and numer- ous accouterments. Available on the menu along with the Italian specialties, stacked sandwiches, hamburgers, subs, steak sandwiches and salads are the homemade desserts. The list includes pecan pie, carrot cake, peanut butter pie and Mark's favorite creation, the heavenly cheesecake. Feedback has been positive so far according to the pair and plans to include a delivery service is in the works for mid-summer. The men plan on keeping this a sea- sonal business to start, but would like to stay open through the fall. "We want to get some of the local trade. We'll stay open as long as possible," explains Williams. First the proud new owners would like to get their feet firmly planted and see what happens when the crowds hit. "There is nervousness as well as excite- ment," says Williams. The Kannery is open Monday to Wednesday 10am-8pm and Thurs- day to Sunday 10am to 10pm with the hours scheduled to be extend- ed during the summer. Call 226- 5006 for more information.
