New Newark LocationDemi Kollias says Newark residents are willing drive 30 minutes for a good cheesesteak — but now they don’t have to.

Kollias, the owner of Claymont Steak Shop’s original location in Claymont, Del., has good news for Newark residents. The business is opening a new location in Amstel Square on the corner of Amstel Avenue and Elkton Road.

The expansion of Amstel Square signals a new beginning for businesses near West Campus on Elkton Road, and students won’t have to venture to Main Street to grab a bite to eat or rent an apartment, Kollias said.

The shop has experienced enormous success since its opening in 1966. She said she sees customers from all over Delaware, some that drive quite far to have a sandwich.

“With our new location in Newark,” Kollias said, “people won’t have to drive that far to just the one shop in Claymont.”

Kollias said the Newark shop is set to open shortly after Thanksgiving.
