Perry's Cherry Diner Poised For Comeback


An iconic Door County diner could be making a comeback.

Perry's Cherry Diner, which closed its doors at 230 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay in March 2010, could be resurfacing in some form, perhaps as early as this year.

Perry Andropolis says he and his wife Tracy have been exploring the idea for a while but what put him "over the edge" was hearing that a woman from Missouri was such a fan of the diner she named her daughter after it.

Perry says hurdles remain -- including financing and securing a suitable site -- but he says they may open a mobile version of the eatery to begin with.

The old restaurant was forced to shut its doors in 2010 after two projects -- the reconstruction of Michigan Street and the lengthy Michigan Street Bridge rehabilitation -- dealt the business a blow it could not recover from.

"We had an opportunity to sell the building and we weren't going to pass that up," says Andropolis. "Even on the last day when we gave away free milkshakes to the community to thank them for all the years of support, we said stay tuned someday because Perry's Cherry 2.0 might live again."
