National Coney Island Opens First Capital Region Coney Station in East Lansing

Roseville-based National Coney Island has opened a new National Coney Station at 565 E. Grand River Ave. in East Lansing.

According to excerpts from the article:

For advertising junior Eric Dornbrook, Thursday’s grand opening of the National Coney Station, 565 E. Grand River Ave., would be the beginning of a love–hate relationship, he said.

“It’s really a disaster, is what it is,” Eric Dornbrook said. “We live two blocks away, and now we’re never leaving.”

For Michiganians like Dornbrook, National Coney Island was a staple of childhood and its arrival in East Lansing means Hani sandwiches and Coney dogs will now be an option for students.

National Coney Island was first founded in Roseville, Mich., in 1965, and since then, the restaurant has popped up in more than 20 locations, most of them in metro Detroit. East Lansing’s National Coney Station is the first of its kind in the Lansing area.
