Corner Cafe holds grand opening of its new site

PARKERSBURG – The Corner Cafe that operated for decades off Seventh Street recently held a grand opening at its new site at Third and Ann streets at Matheny Motors.

The restaurant is owned by Marilyn Plum, who participated in the ceremony with Tim Matheny, president of Matheny Motors, and Robert Newell, mayor of Parkersburg.

“I am so excited to see this day come. I want to thank everyone at Matheny Motors who worked so hard to make this happen,” Plum said.

Matheny welcomed Plum and the store and Newell cited her years in business.

“Marilyn has been serving Parkersburg for 38 years with her delicious food and legendary pie,” Newell said. “I’m very pleased to see successful businesses like Matheny Motors and the Corner Cafe cooperate and benefit each other.

“It is this sense of community and civic pride that makes me proud to be the mayor of our town,” he said.
