What is the status of South Side Deli’s new B Street location?

The new South Side Deli location at 333 B St. in Carlisle officially opened its doors to customers Wednesday.

“It’s great,” said Billy Barnett, who owns South Side Deli with his wife Amy. “… Having the second location is awesome. People seem to be really happy about it. The reaction on Facebook has been great.”

While South Side Deli on Hanover Street caters to a downtown crowd with large rushes during breakfast and lunch, Barnett said the new location will cater to a different clientele.

“We’re gearing more toward the nonbusiness lunch, so to speak, here,” he said.

The menu and recipes will remain the same between the two restaurants, but Barnett said he expects the B Street location to have a steadier crowd and will remain open longer than the Hanover Street location.

“We started on South Street in that tiny 450-square-foot cinder block building,” Barnett said. “We went from 450 square feet to close to 4,000 square feet in six years.”

Barnett said the goal is to open several South Side Deli locations in the area, but for now he said his focus is on the success of the Hanover Street location and growing the new location.

“I’ve always heard the second location is the hardest,” he said.

The B Street location is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.

The restaurant is closed on Sundays.

Barnett said South Side Deli is accepting applications for full-time and part-time employees at both locations.

A grand opening is expected in the summer, Barnett said.
