The Hamburg area will be seeing its first Red Robin this winter. J.G. Petrucci Co. Inc. of Asbury, N.J., said it has acquired a 1.91-acre tract of lad located next to Cabela’s.
Cabela’s, which sells hunting and outdoor gear, is located at the Interstate 78 intersection with Route 61.
The Company is leasing the land to Red Robin and recently obtained full development approvals for a 5,867-square-foot, 212-seat restaurant. The new Red Robin restaurant is slated to open this winter.
“We are excited that Red Robin has selected our Hamburg, PA property for its newest restaurant location,” said Greg Rogerson of Petrucci. “It is a great credit to Tilden Township that we were able to get this project under way given the many moving parts surrounding it.”
Jon Scott, president of the Berks Economic Partnership, said he welcomed the addition and said it is part of the explosion of growth in the area that started with Cabela’s locating there. “It’s one of the reasons why Cabela’s was so important to the region. It wasn’t just to have a Cabela’s in Berks County, but it was that it would spur development like this in Tilden Township,” said Scott. “More and more establishments are going into the area.”
Those are buildings and jobs, which will positively impact the tax base in the township and the country.
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Inc. is a casual dining restaurant chain.
There are more than 430 Red Robin restaurants located across the United States and Canada, including corporate-owned locations and those operating under franchise agreements.
Costas Hrousis of Veraxia Commercial Real Estate Solutions represented Petrucci for the acquisition of the property and ground lease to Red Robin.
