Posted: Jan. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Detroit’s famous Coney Island restaurant will be expanding across the country and has come to the fabulous city of Las Vegas. The company tripled in employee size with in the last year, but doesn’t have any plans on growing anymore. In 5 years the company will reach a century of service.

American Coney Island, one of downtown Detroit's two landmark coney island restaurants, is expanding both at home and across the U.S.

The 95-year-old downtown restaurant at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Griswold Street has opened new locations in Canton and Las Vegas. The iconic, family-owned restaurant now has locations at its original building, suburban Detroit, a Las Vegas casino/hotel, Ford Field and the Detroit Zoo. The company now employs 65 people after hiring 44 new employees in the last year, but doesn't expect to expand any more in the foreseeable future.

"We're good for right now," says Grace Keros, who co-owns American Coney Island with her brother Chris Sotiropoulos. "I have enough to keep me busy."
