The Loretto Pub & Grill
The Loretto Pub has been in business for approximately 180 years, under various names. Students and faculty of St. Francis University, only 2 blocks away, frequent the business as do tourists, parents and others visiting the area.
Chris and Deb Scordo purchased the Loretto Pub from the prior owner, who has owned and operated it for 20 years. The Progress Fund was able to provide a $253,000 loan toward maintaining and improving the experience of those traveling in Pennsylvania’s “outback”.
Loretto Pub is an established and historic business in a picturesque area that is rich in history and agriculture. The Pub is historic and continuing to improve its operation will greatly benefit the rural population which is predominantly low to moderate income.
