Newark, New Jersey: Two restaurant locations that have been under construction for several months are about to open in Newark.
Essex County Place broke the news in the spring that The Halal Guys and Grabbagreen were planning to open locations within the Shoppes on Broad in the city's Downtown. Now, the businesses are preparing for opening day.
According to Morgan Vanderwall of Grabbagreen, the franchise's first location in the Northeastern United States will open at 98 Halsey Street, between Prudental Drive and Cedar Street, this Tuesday, December 13th. The 1,755 square foot restaurant will be owned by Maplewood residents Paul Stephen Hudson and Bernard Ciszewski, who plan to open 20 locations in New Jersey over the next ten years.
A few yards away, The Halal Guys will have a soft opening of its first Essex County location on Monday, December 19th at 72 Halsey Street near the corner of New Street. A ribbon-cutting event will be held next month at the restaurant, which will serve gyros, falafel, chicken, and sandwiches.
Wok to Walk and European Wax Center are also planned for the complex.
