Gabila's knish factory to reopen 5 months after fire

Posted: Updated:

COPIAGUE, N.Y. (AP) -- The Long Island factory that makes deep-fried square knishes is reopening five months after it was badly damaged in a fire.

Co-owner Stacey Ziskin Gabay of Gabila's Knishes says the Copiague, N.Y. plant has been given approval to reopen by the fire marshal.

Gabila's is the only factory that makes square knishes. Gabay said the plant usually makes up to 15 million knishes a year and ships them all over the country.

Knish fans have been kvetching ever since Sept. 24 when a fire damaged the machinery that makes the potato-filled snack.

Gabay said Thursday that company officials were pleased that so many people missed the knishes. She said production will start next week.
