Budd Lake Diner Says Thank YouMay 13, 2022 02:24PM ● By Joe Nicastro
As the recently retired owners of the Budd Lake Diner, we want to thank the community for 35 years of friendship and business. The Balaskonis and Jelis families have been a staple in Mount Olive since moving to New Jersey in 1987. During these last 3 plus decades, we’ve served countless customers with pride and worked tirelessly to serve the people of Mount Olive and the surrounding communities.
We appreciated all those customers that have become our extended family. Many changes occurred throughout years, but one thing remained the same – seeing the familiar faces of Faye, Rita, John and Bill everyday. We personally want to thank the Mount Olive Police Department, fire department, first aid members, schools, and the churches who have stood by us and supported us from the beginning. Even though, we won’t working the diner anymore, we will definitely be in town. Now we are officially retired, this will allow us to dedicate time to our family and grandchildren and travel. Don’t worry the diner is in good hands, the experienced new owners are bringing great new energy and enthusiasm and are excited to be a part of this wonderful community. We wish them the same success and luck we all experienced to them. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts, you left us with infinite memories and friendships. God Bless everyone.
