Caf’ increases visibility, seating
Location, location, location.
That’s partly what prompted Frederick’s Caf’ to move from one downtown Corydon site to another.
Ron Frederick, who owns the caf’ with his wife, Debie, said the decision to relocate from 112 N. Elm St. to 400 N. Capitol Ave. was based on capacity and better visibility.
‘We have the ability here for some more expansion,’ Ron Frederick said. ‘One of the goals is to, hopefully, bring in more customers.’
The new site, on the northeast corner of Capitol Avenue and Walnut Street, was most recently home, for a short time, to Steve O’s Bar & Grill. Before that, it was the Real Enchilada No. 2, Bennett’s and Donahue’s, among others.
With a new spot came some minor changes, however.
So far, Frederick is keeping the restaurant hours the same, which is 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to noon on Sundays. However, he plans to add evening hours, hiring a large enough staff to accommodate the additional serving time.
The menu will remain the same, he said.
Compared to the old site, the new location provides 10 more seats, which increased the capacity from 50 to 60.
The caf’ has improved slightly since moving to its newest location, Frederick said.
‘I think our visibility has improved, and I think that was our end goal as well as expanding into the evening shift,’ he said. ‘Eventually, we hope to have extra dining in the upstairs.’
