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.
