A Chipotle boom is taking place in the 42Freeway area, with another one proposed for Blackwood-Clementon Road, at the site of the former Denny's Restaurant. The Denny's building would be demolished to make way for a new building, which will have space for a future second retail client.
A short 45 second clip of what the Metro Diner and Freeway Diner properties look like today (Nov 11, 2018) is at the bottom of the article. Both diners were purchased for redevelopment, and were demolished over the last few months.
Metro Diner Brooklawn: Will become a Super Wawa Convenience and Gas Station, with an additional retail building on the Kings Highway side. Video clip was taken from behind the diner (at the edge of Rite-Aid property.
Freeway Diner Deptford: Will become a Starbucks and AT&T Store (Moving from across the street). There may be room for additional stores. Video was taken from the side of the property, across the Rt 42 North entrance.
