In a change of plans, Qdoba is not opening in Newtown, a restaurant spokeswoman told Patch Wednesday.
In February, the fast-casual Mexican restaurant received approval from Newtown Township to open a location at the Village at Newtown West shopping center.
But according to Megan Wallace, a Qdoba public relations specialist, plans have changed.
“In the recent past we did consider potential sites for a new Qdoba restaurant in Newtown, however at this point in time we do not have any immediate plans to open in the area,” Wallace told Patch.
The Board of Supervisors in February had approved a conditional use application for Qdoba to open its first Bucks County location. The Mexican eatery was looking to open at 2950 South Eagle Rd, in a 2,800 square-foot space that was previously a doctor's office.
Wallace did not provide a reason for the shift in plans. “Grand opening plans for any company can shift for a multitude of reasons,” she said.
