Roy Rogers Still Looking to Open in Brick

Restaurant chain to come before planning board again

The Roy Rogers chain of fast food restaurants is still looking to open a location at the former Denny's building.

For years, Denny's was located at the corner of Brick Boulevard and Molly Lane. It closed last year.

Roy Rogers currently operates one other location in Ocean County – on Route 9 in Bayville – and has been slated to come before the township's planning board on several occasions as the approval process has moved on. The restaurant chain is scheduled to come before the board next Wednesday, June 27 for another hearing, said Township Planner Mike Fowler.

Fowler said unless any additional issues come up between now and next week, a vote is expected on the restaurant's application then.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. next Wednesday at the township municipal complex.

Every business that has been located on or near the Arby's site has failed, there was a Burger Chef, A Bank, Mr Steak, Krispy Kreme and Arby's. That area is very hard to get to traffic wise. I don't know what could be built there to attract people that won't care about the traffic flow to get there. The other difficult site in town where every business that has moved there has gone out of business, is the Foodtown site. I believe the town did Home Depot a big favor by buying the site and forcing them up the road a bit and locate at the old Costco a much better location. Don't believe Home Depot would have done well if they had built on the Foodtown site. Unless some kind of improvement is made to both locations, anything that builds on either site will eventually go out of business.

W.O.W, Friendlys, Chevy's, Arby's, Denny's 5th Ave Elec store,... Just to name a few within a 5 mile radius ( not to mention smaller store fronts in strip malls) NOT a good sign... I guess Brick got the " change" people voted for ...

Hey I want a White Castle too! Nothing better to clean out the old pipes, better than Exlax. My Brick Food Chain Wish List also includes, Golden Coral, Long John Silvers, Bojangles, In N Out Burger, Baha Fresh, Chick Fil A, and Arthur Treachers.

W.OW left after the fire in the building, in order to stay in the building it needed to much to bring it up to code. No one will ever move into that building !!! As for Chevys they closed down all over the country ( not all, but alot). That will be a new resturant called Quaker Steak and Lube, they are doing the construction now. Freindlys corp is in Bankruptcy, the new owner wants the ice cream brand but not the resturants, so if they wern't turning a profit they were shut down. Buisness will come and go , depending on the economy. As for Roy's, not my favorite food, but if they take a existing buiding thats good for the town.
