Beyond the food court, it’s been ages since any national restaurant chain set up shop at Deptford Mall in Deptford.
That’s about to change.
Red Robin, the casual, gourmet-burger chain, will open a location at the mall this fall, according to the company.
The 210-seat restaurant will operate on the mall’s upper level, near Boscov’s, and next to the Gloucester County store.
This 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.
Red Robin’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 .
Felicia Pollaro, marketing manager for the Deptford Mall, did not respond to a phone call or an email regarding the Red Robin location at the mall.
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. Jobs at the Deptford Mall location will be posted in early fall, she said, and once they are, applications will be accepted through the company's website.
