New Boston Pizza opening on Erb Street
Waterloo Chronicle | Wednesday, February 3, 2010
Boston Pizza has opened a new restaurant location at 651 Erb Street West.
I have lived in the Kitchener- Waterloo area for my entire life and I am always impressed with the support this community has shown to the Boston Pizza brand, praises franchisee Brian Haase.
We are excited to open our doors to serve families, friends, sports teams, and this neighborhood.
The Boston Pizza will be managed by Kelly MacDonnell, and operated by Haase and partners Thomas Greer, Kevin May and Jared Paterson, who operate three other Boston Pizza restaurants in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.
I noticed that a Wild Wing location quietly opened on Weber Street in Waterloo, almost across from the Hauser Furniture building. Bad location, especially with little publicity in my opinion... does anyone know how long it has been here for?
I love how they label it Waterloo "Downtown" on the location page of their website.
Been there a couple months. It's the old Mr Stereo location. I was there in the winter and the parking lot is horrible. I got stuck sliding down that huge slope of a driveway and so did everyone else.
I went to the Weber St Wild Wing a few weeks ago my friend was always telling me about how great the one in Ottawa is so we went. It was alright the wings are pretty good except you have to order alot of wings before you can't split the flavours which I thought was annoying. The night I was there it seemed fairly quiet but there were no promotions going on at the time.
Ya that is a bad location. I feel like that whole stretch of Weber, pretty much from Bridgeport north isn't the best location. Hopefully the push for development along King will spread outwards and effect Weber
They seem to be popping up in a few places, probably an aggressive franchising player. The one on Fischer-Hallman and Ottawa is relatively new too? I'd say the wings are acceptable, lots of interesting flavours but it's generally just some sauces they add on. I think I'd still prefer Morty's. The one in Laurelwood is usually pretty busy (although not jam packed).
Reminds me I went to St Louis Wings on Northfield awhile ago... for someplace in the middle of nowhere on a weekday evening it was really busy. But man the wings were terrible. Probably the worst I've had in a long time. Dried out, tiny pieces of burnt skin with hardly any meat.
