Reading Time: 2 minutes

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.

The application will be reviewed by the Gloucester Township Zoning Board on December 9, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Gloucester Township Council Room, 1261 Chews Landing Road, Laurel Springs, New Jersey 08021, a


Chipotle is a well known “fast casual” Mexican restaurant, featuring a simple multi-step process of ordering… pick your style (Taco Shell, Burrito), Meat (Chicken, Steak, Veggie), Beans and other veggies, cheese.. etc. 

There are locations in Deptford, Sicklerville, Voorhees, Cherry Hill…   a new location just opened in Washington Township, and another is under construction in Glassboro!

As is the case with other recent Chipotle openings, the proposed Blackwood location will have a “Chipotlane” pick-up window.  Orders places on the web or mobile, can be picked up via the drive-thru… but there is no speaker for placing orders!

Blackwood-Clementon Road Project Improvements

While the large K-mart building remains empty, there has been some progress on Blackwood-Clementon Road.

Directly across the street from the old Denny’s is a Royal Farms Convenience store.

One the same side of Blackwood-Clementon Rd (across Emerson Road) a Republic Bank opened in 2018.

A few buildings down in the empty lot which years ago was East Side Mario’s, a new Burger King is planned. (This would be a relocation of the one up the street)

A Dollar General store opened recently at the Commerce Plaza

Giant Fitness is planned for Commerce Plaza II

And we recently spoke to Benderson Development who own the K-Mart shopping center, and they are making a big push to get the K-Mart property leased, but noting is imminent.   (I had emailed them a few months back when I realized at the time they didnt even have the property listed for sale/lease.  It is now)
