    Former Steelers great Franco Harris to open cafe in Pittsburgh

    In case anyone in the Burgh was interested...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Hall of Fame Steelers running back Franco Harris plans to open a cafe in the city's blighted North Side.

    The city's Urban Redevelopment Authority sold him an abandoned corner building for $40,000. Harris said he hopes to open the eatery next spring.

    The cafe will feature Mediterranean-style food and live entertainment. Harris told officials that alcohol would be available on a limited basis — beer and wine with food only, with an option to sell liquor after two years.

    Harris also operates Super Bakery, which makes vitamin enriched pastries and doughnuts, in the city's North Hills suburbs.

    I love it when players get involved in the community and open up businesses like this. I hope it goes well for him.

    The entire city is undergoing some changes for the better, good to see him helping. I'm sure I'll visit sometime next year.

    We need to see more veterans open up business, Lambert Bakery there you go. Cope's Cabana Cafe. Hey I can make up names and they can invest to go with it.
