Emmanuel Tsogas opened Stadium Grille seven years ago at 133 N. Duke St. in downtown York.
Since then, the economic downturn, he said, has affected food sales — something many restaurants are seeing across the board.
Tsogas had to do something about it. He had to find other customer bases to tap into.
“In this economy,” he said, “you have to find other ways to make a dollar. We were just kicking around ideas to generate income, because people are spending less.”
Liquid Hero, which opened in 2011, doesn’t have a kitchen for food preparation.
Tsogas created a condensed version of Stadium Grille’s menu including a few sandwiches, subs, pizza and stromboli.
Liquid Hero, he said, takes orders from the menu and calls them into Stadium Grille, which is capable of delivering within 20 minutes or less.
“It’s been working out pretty great so far,” Tsogas said. “They’re literally right around the corner for us. It creates more of a neighborhood feel. Everybody’s helping eachother.”
