KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Another restaurant in Kennewick opens its doors, bringing more jobs to the Tri-Cities. New York Richie's is known for their New York style pizza and for their Philly cheese steak.
So far they have employed at least 20 people around the area and are still looking to fill some positions. Manager Paige Shermin says the restaurant had a great grand opening and are not worried despite the tough economy.
"The Tri-Cities in general, doesn't really have another New York style place so we knew we would do well, we knew we would not have a lot of competition and we would be able to bring our food somewhere where people would love it," said Shermin. As of now there are two other locations. One in Pendleton and the other in Le Grande.
New York Richie's is located at 5011 W. Clearwater Avenue.
