Zoës Kitchen Closes Abruptly At Goodnoe's Corner In #NewtownPA

Zoës Kitchen Closes Abruptly At Goodnoe's Corner In #NewtownPA | Newtown News of Interest |

Zoës Kitchen closed its Newtown location abruptly this week leaving only a hand written note on the door of the Goodnoe Corner eatery.

The note read simply, “Closed Permanently.”

Zoës Kitchen, a fast casual restaurant chain specializing in Mediterranean-inspired food, opened in 2013 at Goodnoe Corner. It replaced Cosi, which had relocated to the Newtown Business Commons.


johnmacknewtown's insight:


Coincidently (?), the Newtown Planning Commission (NTPC) recommended that the Newtown Board of Supervisors approve approve the conditional us application of Ardana, another "Mediterranean-style" restaurant in the Newtown  Village shopping center. Here's the report that NTPC Chair Peggy Driscoll made to the Supervisors at the Board's February 22, 2023, meeting. The consensus of the BOS was not to oppose the application.


Conditional Use, Ardana, 2948 S. Eagle Road: The applicant is seeking conditional use approval for uses E-5 and E-6, eating place and eating place/take out in the same location as the former Solstice Restaurant. The plan is very similar to Solstice. The ratio of restaurants to retail at the shopping center remains the same. The Commission recommended that the Board approve this application subject to compliance with the review letter of CKS engineering dated February 13, 2023. We also recommended that the owners encourage their employees to park in the sections of the shopping center that are less busy at night.
