WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Downtown Wilmington could soon see a well-known brand open its doors on N. Front Street.
Wilmingtonbiz.com reports a Waffle House is slated to open in the building once occupied by the Soapbox Laundro-Lounge.
The report says North Front St. Ventures, which is buying the 17-thousand-square-foot building, also plans to reopen a laundromat and a space for student housing.
We asked folks in downtown, and people had mixed opinions on whether a Waffle House would be a good fit for downtown.
“Something as commercial as a Waffle House downtown wouldn’t do well,” said Morgan Roberts, who used to play shows at the Soapbox with her band.
“I think it’ll be awesome,” said Brittany Clinton.
Whatever your opinion it appears the restaurant is on its way. There is no word on when it is expected to open its doors.
