Cameron’s Deli opened its third location in Queensbury.
Cameron’s Deli is a franchise. The business was founded in 1996, with the original location in Cross River, a town in Westchester County. The deli expanded to a second location in Brewster, N.Y.
The restaurant in Queensbury opened at 446 Dix Ave. in June.
Kurt Jaeger and Jay Salmon are co-owners of the restaurant. Jaeger is a founding member of Jaeger & Flynn, a financial services firm in the Glens Falls area. Salmon is an investment advisor. The two are friends and when they heard about the opportunity to own a business, they seized the chance.
Cameron’s Deli is open around the clock, seven days a week. There is no indoor seating, although there are picnic tables outside for people who want to sit. The deli is intended to be a place for people to come, order food, and take it to go.
“We never close our doors,” said Jaeger.
There are many food items on the menu. The deli is especially well known for its chicken sandwiches. One that is popular is the Cluck’n Russian:, a chicken cutlet topped with melted Muenster cheese, several slices of bacon, and Russian dressing, all on a toasted hard roll.
The deli features other items such as submarine sandwiches, hamburgers and cheeseburgers, and side dishes like macaroni salad and potato salad. There are hot lunch specials available each day, including beef stew and chicken parmesan.
For those looking for a snack, there are many to choose from, such as mozzarella sticks or chicken wings.
The deli gets bread delivered fresh from New York City. The meats are Boards Head brand.
“It has that real New York City deli feel,” said Jaeger.
A portion of the store is devoted to convenience items like milk, eggs, potato chips, beer and more. There is also an app that customers can download on their smartphone that allows them to order sandwiches ahead of time.
Cameron’s Deli offers full catering for events like corporate meetings and graduation parties.
“Business has been great” said Jaeger. “We want to thank the local community for all of their support. We look forward to serving them.”
The phone number is 518-502-1772.
