Jack’s Slice was recently chosen by the City of Allentown as the official concessionaire at the Allentown Municipal Golf Course. The City announced in mid-May that Jack’s Pizza will take over the vacant restaurant at the golf course and call it “Jack’s Slice.” Jack’s Pizza has been at the corner of Ridge Avenue and Tilghman Street since the 1980’s.
“They’ll make a great addition to the Golf Course,” said Mayor Pawlowski. “They’ve been an institution on Tilghman Street for decades, and it is always a welcome sight to see a local business expand to another location.”
The eatery beat out six other proposals and is currently constructing several upgrades to the building including adding another bar, several High-Definition televisions, and new outdoor patio furniture. Additionally, a walk-in basement cooler for specialty beers, and a golf cart food service to cover all areas of the course will be added as well.
The restaurant will open 30 minutes before the first tee time during the golf season, as well as in the months of November, December, January, and February. The lease will run until December 31, 2015, with an option for an extension of two additional two-year terms. The facility will be open to the public as soon as the renovations are complete.
