Five Guys to come to town soon?
The owners of the Stop & Shop plaza, located at 164 Danbury Road (Route 7 South) in New Milford, are proposing to build a 77-seat restaurant in the plaza.
The restaurant would be built in the north front corner of the plaza.
A lease has already been signed with Five Guys customer hamburger restaurants, according to Willing Biddle, a principal in UB Litchfield LLC, which owns the plaza.
“We’ll clean up that area of the plaza,” Biddle said. “It will be a nice restaurant, with a patio. We expect it would be open by spring 2016.”
Five Guys is an international chain of restaurants with more than 1,000 locations in 47 states and six Canadian provinces, including a restaurant along Federal Road (Route 7 South) in Brookfield.
