Not Your Average Joe's coming to Ellsworth Place mall in Silver Spring

Not Your Average Joe's is the latest addition to the revamped Ellsworth Place mall, which is undergoing a complete makeover expected to be completed this fall. Formerly City Place Mall, Ellsworth Place is still open during the renovation, which will imbue the property with a modern, industrial character.

MOD Pizza opened in the mall in early July; Burlington Coat Factory, Marshalls, Michaels, Ross and TJ Maxx are among the anchor tenants under the new leadership of Petrie Richardson Ventures, a Mid-Atlantic-based developer.

Not Your Average Joe's will occupy a prime, ground-level spot at the corner of Fenton Street and Ellsworth Place. The 6,500 SF restaurant will also have outdoor patio seating, and is expected to open in early 2016.

"Not Your Average Joe’s is the perfect addition to the family of retail here at Ellsworth Place,” said Terry Richardson, president and COO of Petrie Richardson Ventures. “Their inventive menu, affordable prices and family-friendly atmosphere pair well with the modern gathering place we are creating here at Ellsworth Place."

They also give the mall arguably one of the best national chain restaurant brands in downtown Silver Spring. "We’re confident that our approach to casual dining will fit well with the tastes of Silver Spring residents and shoppers," NYAJ's CEO and founder Steve Silverstein said Wednesday.

Ellsworth Place is projected to generate approximately $38.4 million in tax revenues for Montgomery County over the next 20 years, and to support 807 permanent FTE jobs in the County, according to a statement released yesterday.
