Alpenland Delicatessen sells, new owners take over in June

Alpenland Delicatessen has been sold. The new owners, Chris and Dianne Masaoka, will take over the restaurant on June 4 and plan to keep everything the same.

"We're delighted, absolutely delighted," said Linda Gadola, who has owned Alpenland for nearly 15 years. Of the new owners, she said, "They have experience. They are qualified and we think they'll do a great job. And we know that they're nice people, and that's what we wanted for our customers. The main thing is, we were hoping to find someone who would continue to keep it as it is."

Chris Masaoka's grandfather is German, and that is the tie-in, Gadola said.

Alpenland went up for sale in August 2011.
