Red Robin Now Set to Open Early Next Year at Deptford Mall
The Colorado-based gourmet burger chain's Deptford Mall location will be its first in the area.
You'll have to suffer through holiday shopping at the Deptford Mall without Red Robin.
The casual, gourmet-burger chain's location on the mall’s upper level, near Boscov’s, and next to the Gloucester County store, is set to open in early 2013.
Red Robin initially announced in July the restaurant would open this fall.
But, the opening date has been pushed back as construction continues on the 210-seat eatery.
Red Robin's arrival in the area is good news for South Jersey fans of the chain’s “bottomless fries” and of its more than 15 styles of burgers. The restaurant chain’s only other current South Jersey location is on the Black Horse Pike in Mays Landing, near the Hamilton Mall—about 35 miles from Deptford.
The chain's arrival also is good news for Deptford Mall shoppers, who will now have another dining option. The only other restaurant chain with a liquor license at the mall is Ruby Tuesday.
Red Robin, which is headquartered in Greenwood Village, CO, has more than 460 locations across the United States and Canada. About one-third of them are franchises. The Deptford location will be company owned.
Each Red Robin typically employs about 150 people, said company spokeswoman Jamie Winter. Anyone interested in a job at the Deptford Mall location can apply online through the company's website.
