It will soon be a trio of food businesses in the building that until early last year housed just one (On Safari Foods): JC’s Deli is on the way to 9007 35th SW, next door to West Seattle Fish House and two doors down from Stuffed Cakes. We’ve been investigating since a Facebook tip over the weekend; at the future site, which previously held a remodeling company, we found some deli equipment (right) and a flooring worker who told us that “Jeanette, who’s been around here a long time” – was going to open a deli.
More research today tracked down the full story: Jeanette Cummings, who worked for years at Hoagies Corner a short distance south at 35th and Barton (now Super Deli Mart), is opening JC’s Deli with daughter Cynthia Cummings. WSB’s Katie Meyer talked this afternoon with Cynthia, who says it’ll be a real deli, with a dine-in area as well as to-go orders. They’ll offer fresh-made sandwiches including “classic hoagies,” with deli meats and cheeses. Non-alcoholic beverages to start with, Cynthia adds. They hope to open JC’s Deli in early October.
