After 7 weeks of hard work, snow storms and only being open weekends in our Gardenview Dining Room, it is now business as usual at Hershey Farm.
We reopened our doors and our brand new buffet area on Saturday, February 20th. Following the weekend, we invited guests to come see our newly remodeled restaurant and enjoy our buffet for only $5.00 per person.
The grand reopening was a huge success. The $5.00 buffet brought numerous people to our restaurant. Some came every day!! A guest from the Washington DC area heard about our offer and called inquiring about the buffet and the special offer.
Our guests were curious to see the new and exciting changes that we had been talking about for months. The new food room has no resemblance to the old one. We removed some seating in order to add additional food bars and improve the movement through the food room and decrease the lines.
We continue to serve 3 homemade soups but have added chili and a baked potato bar to our soup and salad bar. We added a grill station which offers a variety of dishes that are made especially for each guest with ingredients that they choose. Some of the selections include omelets and eggs made to order at breakfast. Chicken or beef fajitas, cheese steaks, Italian sausage sandwiches, chicken alfredo, hamburger sliders and stir fry just to name a few.
When it comes to dessert, there were many additions as well. We now offer soft serve ice cream with various toppings, pudding parfaits and jello. We continue to serve our signature whoopie pies and chocolate cake. We are very excited about the addition of a beautiful chocolate fountain that graces the dessert bar at dinner time and weekends. There are amazing soft pretzels as well for those people who like salty along with their sweet.
We had a continuous flow of guests who visited us during the week of the $5.00 special offer. Even when the wait to be seated exceeded 2 ½ hours, guests continued to wait patiently in order to try our new buffet. Each day we served over 1,000 people. An outstanding outcome for our reopening special.
With that said, if you have not experienced the new buffet we invite you to stop in and see us. If you visited us during our Grand reopening special, thank you for helping to make that week a wonderful success for us. Your business is greatly appreciated here at Hershey Farm. Come back and visit us again soon!
