PRINCE GEORGE – The historic courthouse and Sebera’s Custard Kitchen all share something in common; while they may be neighbors, they also share the distinction of being fixtures along Courthouse Road in Prince George County.
In a message on his blog last week, Prince George County Administrator Percy Ashcraft confirmed the news that changes are on the way to the longtime local business known for its decades of delicious food, people, and service.
According to Ashcraft, owner Dennis Sebera confirmed the business will be entering into a lease agreement with Prince George Dairy Mart, LLC. The company’s new management team was issued a business license by the county’s Commissioner of Revenue on Sept. 1, is slated to take over the kitchen and gas station over the course of the next few weeks.
Sebera’s has been operated by the family since the late 1920s.
“It is a bittersweet moment in time for generations of Prince George County residents who have frequented the business in one way or another,” the county administrator penned in his post. “All are happy for Dennis and his family as he turns a chapter in his life, but the comfort of not seeing familiar faces will take some getting used to by all who visit in the future.”
According to the State Corporation Commission, Prince George Dairy Food Mart, LLC was formed and registered on June 28 of this year by Ayman Alshaikh. Ashcraft noted Alshaikh operates a number of gas stations in nearby Dinwiddie County.
As Sebera’s enters this new chapter, Ashcraft spoke to the decades of dedication to Prince George that was evident every time they opened the doors to their business across from the county government complex while welcoming a new business operator to the county.
“Many thanks to the Seberas for their longtime commitment to Prince George County,” Ashcraft remarked. “And a hearty good luck to the new management and welcome as a new member of the Prince George County business community.”
