Lillian Boncore and her husband have been talking about starting a business in the city for years.
They checked out numerous sites but couldn’t find the right fit, until they walked into One Niagara and spoke with co-owner Frank Parlato Jr. Soon afterward, “Burger Palace” opened for business on the first floor of the former Occidental Building, joining a mix of eateries, souvenir shops and other small business ventures.
“It was just a great opportunity for us,” said Boncore, who started the business this past summer. “It’s been very busy and it’s such a great atmosphere here. I think it’s a great asset to local business owners.”
