Popular restaurants to arrive in Waltham

Coming soon to 1030 Main Street in Waltham: Five Guys, Chipotle and Panera Bread. The arrival of these restaurants has been in the works for almost two years. Although they hadn’t selected a location at the time, Five Guys and Panera Bread both announced their plans in December 2011. With Chipotle added to the mix, Waltham awaits the openings of the three chains.

Construction mistakes have delayed the opening of the restaurants, according to WalthamPatch, in addition to obtaining “special permits” by the Waltham City Council in order to reduce the number of parking spaces on the site.

Five Guys is scheduled to open at the beginning of September. There is, however, no word from the other two establishments as to when they will open.

1030 Main Street is 1.4 miles from the Brandeis campus, providing students three more local off-campus dining options.
