Bedford Subway Expected to Open Around May 4th

Construction of the Subway Restaurant at 170 Great Road in Bedford Marketplace is almost complete. According to Franchise owners Harshil Parikh and Niral Ghandi, the new restaurant, which is replacing a Verizon store is expected to open around May 4th. They are planning a lot of promotions in the first three months. While they have a lot of experience in the hotel and hospitality industry, this will be their first Subway franchise.

Interior construction is just abut complete. While there is still some remaining outside cleanup and signage, the restaurant is expected to open in a few weeks.

Harshil mentioned they are looking forward to becoming actively involved within the Bedford Community and are planning some special recycling efforts. There are currently five Subways in Burlington and three in Billerica.

Stay tuned for more details.

This is one of two new restaurants coming to Bedford Marketplace. Work has just started on another restaurant across the parking lot.

The former Cambridge Savings Bank will become a b.good, which is a fast casual restaurant focusing on Burgers, Salads and Shakes.

You can anticipate how much better the shopping center will look after renovations when you look at how the b.good storefront looks with the drab brown siding removed on top (even the bare wood looks better!).

Hi Anonymous,

I agree. I hope it's not "new" brown siding going back up.

The bigger eyesore around town is definitely the decrepit former Travelodge. Any idea if something's going on over there? Thanks for all the updates, Adam!

Last I heard it was on hold. With Panera set to open soon along with many other restaurants in town, I'm guessing it would be more difficult to sign on another fast food/quick service restaurant. The other issue is that the town wanted to have traffic exiting from the lot go through the shopping center. The shopping center owner claimed he could not do that as his lease agreements prevented that. This brought up traffic concerns for cars trying to make a left turn out of that lot. I'll see if I can get an update.

It looks like something is moving at the travel lodge site. Fingers crossed! Any updates on improvements to the Great Road Shopping Center? It would be smart to invest now, especially with the 3rd Avenue project in Burlington starting.
