One of my new favorite destinations is the shops at Hamilton Crossings in Trexlertown. You can catch me there frequently as my gym is close by.
And now it’s home to one of our favorite places when we treat ourself to go out to eat. Blooming Onions anyone? The new outback (replacing the one on Tilghman Street. This new Outback Steakhouse has brought 45 new jobs to the community.
On November 15th they hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony and officially became open to guests. “We are delighted to continue serving the Trexlertown community at our newest Outback Steakhouse,” said Lynn Yazji, Managing Partner of the Trexlertown Outback location. “We look forward to sharing delicious meals and memories with our neighbors for years to come.”
Guests at the new Outback will be able to enjoy signature grilled steaks, chicken and seafood entrees, and the Bloomin’ Onion in a restaurant boasting the chain’s new “Modern Australia” design, with décor that mirrors the indigenous flora and fauna, adventure, geography and leisure of modern day Australia. Featuring a spacious dining room and large bar area that can accommodate 240 guests, the 6,497-square foot restaurant will employ 110 employees, 45 of whom are new hires.
Outback Steakhouse Partners With Local Charities (even more reason to love them!)
For those of you not aware, Outback Steakhouse partakes in ongoing nationwide charity give-back program, and to show its support for the Trexlertown community, 50-percent* of sales on November 15 were donated to the Angel 34 foundation, a national organization based in Nazareth, PA united in the fight against childhood cancer and dedicated to finding a cure. Additionally, Angel 34 held auction throughout the day.
“We are truly honored to team up with Outback Steakhouse in our mission to help find a cure and advancing treatment options for childhood cancer,” said Doug Sheriff, President of Angel 34. “Thanks to the support of partners like Outback, we’re one step closer to bringing hope and healing to the children and families affected by this disease.”
If you aren’t familiar with Angel 34, it is a childhood cancer charity started by the late Nicole Sheriff at the age of 13, with the goal to have an angel watching over every child suffering from cancer. Angel 34 has been committed to bringing hope and healing to the children and families of those affected by childhood cancer by finding a cure and advancing treatment options for childhood cancer.
