What's in a name? Plenty, especially in the food world.
Say "Chubby's" in Troy, for example, and it conjures memories of a tiny group of sub shops that lasted until just a few years ago and fed a lot of satisfied customers over the years.
But, say "Chubby's" in Schenectady's Mount Pleasant neighborhood and what comes to mind is a convenience store that generated more than 500 public safety calls over a nine-month period in 2015 and has been closed for months.
Now comes word that a local businessman is proposing to reopen the controversial Crane Street location as a pizza shop and convenience store called Yankee Pizza & Deli. The Daily Gazette has a nice story on the controversial plan. You can read it here.
