AUBURN — The Cheesy Skillet plans to open this week at its first location at the Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport.

Owner Dan Caron said he has been waiting for a final health inspection before they can open. When that approval comes, the all-things-cheese restaurant will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with plans to expand the hours.

The well-known former chef at The Green Ladle in Lewiston is launching the first of what the family plans to grow into a chain of Cheesy Skillet restaurants in central Maine.

“Our menu is all about cheese, from appetizers to desserts. We carry over 10 kinds of cheeses from American Cooper to Muenster cheese,” Caron said in anticipation of the opening. Caron said he and his family have been planning the restaurant for almost a decade.
