Sylvan’s Joey’s Only relocating

The Sylvan Lake Joey’s Only Seafood is on the move.

Hwy 20 traffic passes as workers ready concrete foundation forms for a new multi-bay commercial building that will house the Joey’s Only restaurant in Sylvan Lake’s Beju Industrial Park Tuesday.

The Sylvan Lake Joey’s Only Seafood is on the move.

The restaurant, which currently operates on the second floor of the Sylvan Lake Marina building at 5220 Lakeshore Dr., is preparing to relocate to Beju Industrial Park.

Perry Carruthers, who owns the franchise with his wife Cathy, said an April opening is being targeted.

“That’s what I’m hoping, but it all depends on how construction goes.”

The restaurant’s new premises at 21 Beju Industrial Dr. will be adjacent to the SmartCentres shopping centre. Carruthers is optimistic the rapid commercial and residential development in the area — which includes construction of a hotel — will generate plenty of traffic.

“Where I’m at right now, through the summer it’s fantastic but through the winter we’re off the beaten path here and a lot of people forget about us.”

Joey’s Only will occupy about half of the 8,000-square-foot building being developed by the Carruthers. That will leave three bays for lease, with the building zoned highway commercial.

The new restaurant will have seating for 110, up from 72, and will boast a small patio.

Medican owns the Sylvan Lake Marina. Jim Lawrence, the company’s project manager for Sylvan Lake, said Medican has yet to take action with respect to space used by Joey’s Only.
