I doubt it will be a chain. It’s not large enough imo. I’ve had to park on the street several times. I don’t think any of the big chains would go for it. Maybe some type of breakfast spot would work. Who knows.
I fairly recently asked one of the former owner of Apella why they closed since the food was so good and they seemed busy and the answer was while they were packed on the weekend the were too slow during the week to make it work economically without sacrificing the quality. I know I only went on the weekends.
Funny, the fact that it’s near Lowe’s or anything else doesn’t make a difference to me If the food is good!
Viaggio is in an ugly strip mall and you have a great view facing a Burger King, and that hasn’t stopped them from packing it in. Good food & service negates everything else.
