The story of Little Boomers'

A Family Legacy

"We grew up in the food industry, from helping cater to working in our parents' restaurants,"

The Cleary family has a long history in the restaurant business in Corning. Karen Cleary and the late Fran "Boomer" Cleary owned former Corning eateries Boomer's, Boomer's Bistro and Boomer's Catering.

 

Now, their children - Andrew and Nicole Cleary - hope to continue the tradition with Little Boomer's Burrito Bar, set to open in late February at 30 W. Market St., the former home of DeClemente's Italian Deli, which closed in December.

 

The Cleary siblings say they grew up on Market Street, learning the ins-and-outs of the restaurant business. Read the full story.
