Coco's restaurant is serving dinner again---charities, too

Fourteen months after it closed, the Coco’s Bakery restaurant in Federal Way is open for dinner.

The eatery at 32065 Pacific Hwy. S., just west of The Commons at Federal Way, resumed dinner service in March. It reopened for breakfast earlier.

To mark the return of dinner service, the restaurant is participating in two community fund-raising events –– one benefitting Federal Way Chamber of Commerce’s Education and Communities in Schools Foundation, the other supporting Food Lifeline, a regional food bank supplier.

This week and through April 17, Coco’s will give Food Lifeline $5 from each whole pie the restaurant serves for dine-in or take-out.

And on April 25, Coco’s will donate the price of its meals to the education foundation, which supports summer school.

The restaurant, now operated by its Carlsbad, Calif.-based parent company, Catalina Restaurant Group, was a franchise when its then-operator closed it in January 2005 for what were reported by Coco’s officials as personal financial reasons of the franchisee. The Federal Way location had been in business for about 25 years.
