SALISBURY, Md.- Demolition began Monday of the Plaza Tapatia restaurant on South Salisbury Boulevard in Salisbury to make way for the construction of a new Royal Farms convenience store. 

Kathryn Ellis, project manager for Delmarva Veteran Builders, said Monday that the planned 5,200-square-feet facility will offer eight gas station pumps. According to Ellis, construction will take about seven months to complete and will take over the back side of the building near the water tower. 

In a photo aired on Salisbury University's television station in February, the restaurant put a sign up on its window saying a Royal Farms would not be built in its place. However, Ellis confirmed that a Royal Farms will open in the coming months and demolition of the restaurant began Monday.
