Recognizable restaurant space is no more

New multi-tenant building going in where Sizzler, Hooters once stood.

IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED—A 35-year-old building (shown below last year) in front of Janss Marketplace, home to multiple restaurant ventures over the years—most notably Hooters and Sizzler—was demolished last week to make way for a new multi-tenant building with a drive-thru. The mall has said it has commitments from Starbucks, Wingstop and California Fish Grill to occupy the space. Sandy Sigal, CEO of NewMark Merrill, the company that owns the mall, said he expects the new businesses to be up and running by the end of the year. He also noted that construction is underway on a new Aldi grocery store.
