The Best "Chains on Main"
Pamela's P&G Diner of Pittsburgh takes second place:
"Pamela's P&G Diner is recognized for their 'Strip District' location, a historically gritty, industrial neighborhood just northeast of downtown Pittsburgh. Pamela's P&G Diner is an anchor in the district, attracting visitors from the entire region and drawing foot traffic that invariably helps other local businesses. According to nominee Neighbors in the Strip, a local community group leading commercial revitalization efforts, Pamela's also takes the lead in donating to worthy causes at its Strip District location. They consistently supports community efforts by sponsoring block parties, providing breakfast for more than 35 photographers during the organization's annual photo walk and photography contest, and donating to other local causes."
