Construction is expected to begin this month on a new site for Thoroughbred Harley-Davidson that will pair the dealership with a Quaker Steak and Lube.
Owner Robert Nolan is moving the dealership in Florence, Kent., to a former car dealership nearby. The new combination is expected to create more space and a better atmosphere for bike nights and other events.
“For us it’s a match made in heaven,” Nolan told the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Once the planning commission approves plans, renovation will begin on the former building. The Harley-Davidson dealership will be open before the restaurant because Quaker Steak will be in an entirely new building. After the move Nolan expects to quadruple his work force. “We’ll substantially improve our showroom and our service,” he says.
