A Taste of Excellence, which is moving its headquarters from Parma to Strongsville, is seeking permission to add a 1,944-square-foot patio to its site at 16888 Pearl Rd.
The request will be heard Thursday by the Strongsville Planning Commission.
Economic Development Manager Brent Painter said the well-known catering company is putting a bakery, to be called Patisserie 42, in the business. The patio would serve bakery customers who want to enjoy their treats onsite.
A Taste of Excellence purchased and renovated the former Zig's bowling alley.
"It's a wonderful thing they've done," Painter said. "They took a blighted building and turned it into a wonderful project."
The company also plans to open a year-round farmer's market in the building, although probably not till next year.
