New restaurants headline enhancements to The Mall
Chipotle Mexican Grill and Chicken Salad Chick will open at The Mall at Johnson City, Tenn. in a new multi-tenant building at North Roan Street. The new fast-casual restaurant concepts will anchor that part of the Tri-Cities development starting spring 2021, announced Washington Prime Group (WPG), as the firm aims to continue attracting additional regional and national foodservice concepts.
“Chipotle Mexican Grill has been a mainstay in my household for fifteen years or so for a couple of reasons,” said Lou Conforti WPG chief executive. “First of all, they’re food is always fresh and plain and simple, delicious. Second, as both of my teenage daughters are vegetarian, Chipotle is one of the few places where I am able to satisfy their herbivorous, as well as my carnivorous, cravings.”
Conforti also expressed his admiration of the Chicken Salad Chick chain, which now numbers more than 150 restaurants. As part of redevelopment efforts, HomeGoods is also slated to replace the former Sears. Retailers Rose & Remington and Curve & Cloth plan openings at The Mall at Johnson City next spring. Already, new seating, lighting, flooring materials, and finishes to enhance the shopping experience have been completed.
Regarding its planned 50th Anniversary celebration of The Mall, WPG said that, “Due to the Company’s focus on the health and safety of its guests, retailers, employees and community partners during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, timing and details relating to the 50th Anniversary community event will be announced as circumstances stabilize and return to normal.”
