new restaurant under consideration in Ligonier Borough

A new dining option, featuring freshly prepared comfort foods such as chicken and waffles and buttermilk biscuits, could open for business in Ligonier.
The borough's planning committee Monday voted to recommend to council the approval of a conditional-use application from Elise Wells, 34, of Ligonier to open the shop as Wigle Sisters Kitchen at 321 W. Main St. in a building that formerly housed a tanning salon. Wells plans to serve for to-go and eat-in dining from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Wells has sold her homemade foods at the Ligonier Country Market for four years.

Council will hold a public hearing on Wells' application at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 12.
