Wingstop and Subway Coming to Clay Street in Newark

Newark, New Jersey: Two chain restaurants will open locations in Newark's Lower Broadway neighborhood. Franchises of Wingstop and Subway will open in the new shopping plaza on Clay Street between McCarter Highway/Route 21 and Passaic Street. 

The Newark Wingstop location will be the first in Essex County for the airplane themed Dallas, Texas-based chain, and the second location in New Jersey. The other New Jersey location opened in the Elmora section of Elizabeth, Union County in July, 2014. Wingstop locations serve chicken wings, fries, and other items. 

Connecticut-based Subway is no stranger to Newark and Essex County. 16 locations of the international chain already operate within the Newark city limits. 

The shopping plaza has 31 parking spaces, and is located within a short walk from New Jersey Transit's bus stops on Broad Street. The plaza was built on a vacant lot that had been gated off for several years. Construction on the plaza began in 2013. Click here to learn more.
