Red Robin is bringing its burgers to the Plaza at Cherry Hill.
The gourmet burger chain has officially signed a lease at the Plaza, which sits along Route 38 next to the Cherry Hill Mall, according to a real estate firm representing the shopping center’s ownership.
The move comes about four months after Cherry Hill’s planning board OK’d Red Robin’s site plan, clearing the way for the restaurant to move in.
Red Robin will occupy about 6,000 square feet in the Plaza, which is home to L.A. Fitness, Sam Ash Music and Raymour & Flanigan, among others, representatives from Fameco Real Estate, LP, said.
An exact timeline for the restaurant’s opening wasn’t immediately released; Jamie Winter, Red Robin’s communications manager, said in the fall it was listed in the company’s expansion plans, but didn’t have more information at the time.
Red Robin, which is headquartered in Greenwood Village, CO, has more than 460 locations across the United States and Canada.
It opened a new restaurant in Deptford just three weeks ago, which is the chain’s seventh in New Jersey.
Red Robin will come into Cherry Hill with some competition—the mall is home to Bobby's Burger Palace, owned by celebrity chef Bobby Flay, and Zinburger, a combination wine and burger bar, is opening at Garden State Park on March 5.
