Turning Point Restaurant is Coming to Doylestown
Turning Point just announced they will be opening another location in Doylestown, Bucks County. The news was first confirmed by Patch.
The popular brunch spot will occupy the vacant space in the Doylestown Shopping Center. The space has been empty for over five years after its previous tenant, Friendly's, went out of business.
The location plans to open its doors to Bucks County residents in the fall, and many locals are relieved it's not just another bank opening.
Turning Point tried to move into the space two years ago, but the restaurant was unable to as a result of a "non-compete" clause that Starbucks had in place with the shopping center.
Starbucks agreed to make an exception to the non-compete in return for help from the shopping center with their drive through to help resolve it's traffic congestion.
"It's a win for all parties involved, Sean Sablosky, owner of the Doylestown Shopping Center, told The Bucks County Courier Times. "They needed our permission and help to improve the drive through, and we need their help in accommodating Turning Point."
Turning Point recently opened doors to its Newtown Location. This will be the chain's third location in Bucks County. It sounds like the restaurant will open sometime in 2019, but an exact opening date was not immediately clear, according to a report from the Bucks County Courier Times.
