|Location of planned Jimmy John's sandwich shop at 475 Winter St Waltham|
Boloco, a regional burrito chain headquartered in Boston, had hopes for a shop of its own at this location and presented itself before the City Council in 2012. There were strong concerns from the Council primarily over parking at the site to accommodate a quick service restaurant. Although the Council did not formally approve or reject the request for a Special Permit, Boloco ultimately decided to withdraw its plans to open in Waltham. Given the similar business profile to Jimmy John's, it is unclear at this time if the issues that arose from the Boloco proposal have since been remedied. Stay tuned for updates.
