New MCL Cafeteria
MCL Cafeterias announces the grand opening of their newest cafeteria on 86th and Township Line Road. This MCL opens on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2003. What makes this MCL different from the rest is the inclusion of a New York-style deli that will feature sandwiches with the same meats that are served at the Carnegie Deli in New York. The MCL deli offerings will be top-of-the-line, yet affordable, and the regular cafeteria section will offer the same quality, home-cooked, wholesome food in a modern family atmosphere.
