New Sandwich Shop Coming to Stratford

New business comes to Stratford Center.

Last October we asked readers, What Should Take Oronoque Farm's Place in Stratford?

At the time, the 860 square feet of space was housing Wayne Winsley's campaign for Congress.

Well, fast forward five months and Rosa DeLauro is your Third District Congresswoman -- beating Winsley convincingly in the fall election -- and a new sandwich shop is poised to move in to the vacant space.

Planning and zoning administrator Gary Lorentson told Patch Wednesday that the town's zoning commission in February approved an application from a Derby man to open a deli-style shop at the location, 2377 Main St.

Details of the shop are few as the application was not required to include such features, Lorentson said. But there will be a variety of cold cuts and possibly limited hot food available for take-out, and no tables inside or out, he said.

Lorentson said the sandwich shop could open as soon as a full plan is sent to and approved by the Stratford Health Department, and a buidling permit is acquired, which is "a fast process."

A call to the owner Wednesday was not immediately returned. Once we hear back we'll update this story. What would you like us to ask him? Tell us in the comments below.

I think South Stratford would do well with a Chipolte restaurant. We don't have anything like it here. Good, fresh, healthy choices.

Wow, seconded.

@Anne and Helene, was it really pertinent or necessary to add that the cadaver beat Winsley convincingly in the election? No.
