Qdoba to Open in Downtown Newark

Newark, New Jersey: A location of a national fast casual Mexican restaurant franchise will open in Downtown Newark in the near future. 

Qdoba Mexican Eats will be located within Prudential's new Shoppes on Broad development at 64 Halsey Street, at the corner of New Street. It will join Starbucks Coffee and another fast casual restaurant, Blaze Pizza, in the development, which was built at the site of a parking lot.  

This will be the third Qdoba location in Essex County. Other locations operate at The Mall at Short Hills in Millburn Township and at Newark Liberty International Airport in the South Ward of the city. Qdoba is owned by West Coast fast food chain Jack in the Box.

Another Mexican restaurant chain, Chipotle, opened a location on Market Street in Downtown Newark last year. 

The Qdoba location is currently hiring.

Update: The location is slated to open on April 29.
