New Owner, Alex Morales, Featured in Spotlight News

COLONIE  It’s a story as American as Apple Pie.
The Capital District’s favorite pie shop re-opened under a new owner on Friday, Aug. 3 and it’s like eating comfort food with your slippers on.
“It was a good business opportunity first, and the other thing is it is one of the places I came to when I first came to America 17 years ago,” said Alex Morales, the iconic restaurant’s new owner who also owns LaFiesta, a Mexican restaurant in Albany. “After working very hard in different places, when I heard about the opportunity to buy Grandma’s I thought it was an amazing opportunity.”
Grandmas has been on Central Avenue since opening its doors in 1976. Famous for its pies — crowds flocked to the place for special occasions like Christmas and Thanksgiving — it also offers a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.
“When we heard they were closing it was a very sad day,” said Daniel Lewicki, a customer for at least a decade and who favors the strawberry rhubarb, cherry and apple pies. “Our tradition is we go to church every Sunday morning and then we come here. We are so happy to see it open again.”
Morales said he doesn’t expect much to change right off the bat but is not afraid to make some minor adjustments as he settles in and he observes what customers like and don’t like and what sells and doesn’t sell.
“We will try to stick to the past. To keep it like it was and keep the tradition,” he said. “We will continue with the high quality the restaurant is known for and then see what we can do next.”
There are about 35 employees, he said, and after a staff meeting last week. They are happy to be back, and Morales is happy to have them.
