The 1,400-square-foot Hamilton restaurant also will offer beer by the can or on tap, margaritas and soft serve ice cream in a waffle cone or in a dish, Coomer said.

Coomer told the Journal-News he is opening a new location of fast-food chain Chick’n Cone because of its unique pairing of the two main ingredients in a different way and with french fries and a variety of sauces.

“I understand people have chicken and waffles, but this is chicken and waffles with a different flavor,” he said.

The new Chick’n Cone will employ between eight and 12 full- and part-time employees, Coomer said.
