LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - Instead of driving all the way to Roanoke or Christiansburg to enjoy American classic dinner food, Lynchburg is finally getting it's own Denny's restaurant.

The American diner-style chain is planned to open in the La Quinta Inns & Suites on 3330 Candlers Mountain Road across from River Ridge Mall.

"The cite plan for Denny’s has already been submitted and it’s on the agenda for February 21st. If approved, construction can begin," according to the technical review committee.

The diner-style restaurant chain would be a 500-square-foot addition to the site of former restaurant Daybreak, which operated under the previous hotel Days Inn.

The diner is set to seat 140 guests.

John Metz, the owner of Restaurant Real Estate Management Corporation LLC., is the man behind this expansion into Lynchburg.

Denny's Corporate Office says the restaurant is expected to open for May, but there is no set opening date yet.

The 24/7, 365 days a year corporation has been franchising Denny’s in Virginia for 20 years with more than 20 locations across the state.

The next closest Denny’s locations are in Roanoke and Salem.
