Subway Coming Soon to Downtown Ridgewood

Chain will be the third national sandwich franchise to occupy store on the same block of Ridgewood Avenue.

Work on a new Subway franchise is underway in an East Ridgewood Avenue storefront.

The space at 70 East Ridgewood Avenue previously contained Warehouse Chic Accessories, a small jewelry and fashion chain with four other locations in New Jersey.

Subway has not specified when the sandwich shop will open. Other nearby franchise locations include Glen Rock, Midland Park, Hawthorne and Fair Lawn.

It’s not the first time that a national sandwich chain will attempt tenancy on the avenue. Just across the street, the current location of Red Mango previously housed a Blimpie, and later a Quiznos.

Mikka: I'm going to take a wild guess that you've never operated your own business. The businesses you gave examples of as having gone out of business could have gone out of business for a variety of reasons. Yes, profitability is typically the number one reason, but that, also, can be attributable to numerous reasons. I guess we will have to wait and see just how these "idiots" at the new Subway make out, but in the meantime, I thank them for trying and occupying a retail space in our CBD.

Quizno's started on a high note but as the store became unkempt people went elsewhere... Blimpie was tossed salad on a hero with a slab or 2 of cold cuts and as far as Red Mango, I don't know how many yogurt and smoothie shops 1 town can support... Subway has a pretty good track record in terms of franchises...maybe the 4th time's a charm....

HC, I.m going to take a wild guess that you've never operated your own business....making a profit IS the number one reason for starting a business....and IS the number one reason you lock the doors if its not there. these businesses that you "thank" for "occupying" a space is self serving.....you only care about what the CBD looks like so you can protect your property value.....otherwise you could give a rats ass....what are the "numerous" reasons for failure? I refer the gentleman to the many posts I have made about poor business plans, sky high rents, mommies with nothing else to do and dads with cash to burn that feed the cycle. govern yourself accordingly.
