Chik-fil-A to replace Krispy Kreme
The Krispy Kreme doughnut store at 1104 E. Pittsburgh St. in Greensburg closed last month, about three months shy of what would have been its fourth anniversary.
However, the building will not be vacant for long, as a Chik-fil-A outlet is due to open in mid- to late January, said Mark Baldwin, spokesman for the Atlanta-based quick-service chicken restaurant chain.
The stand-alone Chik-fil-A restaurant is expected to create about 65 new jobs. Baldwin said the outlet will be operated by Chuck Clark, Jr., who runs a Chik-fil-A store in Westmoreland Mall.
Speaking of new homes, Vocelli's pizza opened Sept. 22 in the Davis Center at 660 E. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg. The pizza store used to be located at 110 Harrison St., Greensburg.
The Vocelli's in Greensburg is one of four outlets operated by Pat and William Dingel. The couple also run Vocelli outlets in Lower Burrell, Butler, Natrona Heights and Springdale.

"Weddings, parties, corporate and special events, these occasions are alive with personalities and soul," Powers said.
Powers said she is still looking for space in downtown Greensburg to set up shop. She hopes to open before the Christmas holidays. More information can be obtained by calling 724-837-2572.
