Sizzler celebrated the reopening of its Lomita restaurant at 2421 W. Pacific Coast Highway, following an eight month, $800,000 renovation. The restaurant, which opened in the 1970s, now features state-of-the-art digital menu boards, a new 138-seat dining room and updated exterior.
Lomita Chamber of Commerce members hosted a rededication ribbon-cutting ceremony and honored Sizzler's new Lomita general manager. Juan Avendano joined Sizzler Lomita as a dishwasher, building a career into management.
"It's a real pleasure to become the general manager, especially since I have so many great memories from when I first started here," said Avendano. "A lot of long-time friends and family eat here," added the Harbor City resident.
"We’re very pleased and grateful that the community has embraced the new Sizzler and been so supportive," said Sizzler President and CEO Kerry Kramp.
