Barrington Restaurant LLC is working with the borough to bring a restaurant and convenience store to the White Horse Pike site now occupied by the empty Bok Bok Fresh restaurant, according to the company’s president.
The company — a subsidiary of Delco Development LLC — is in the very early stages of the plan, Delco president Thomas Juliano said today. A major step was purchasing the liquor license that had been held by The Roadhouse Saloon and Steakhouse until it was seized recently for unpaid taxes.
Juliano said the redevelopment effort would take some time in today’s market. He said there was a major convention coming up in Las Vegas in May, and that his company would be at the convention to pitch the location and opportunity.
“We think it’s a great site,” Juliano said. “We’re looking forward to doing something great in Barrington.”
Until a plan comes together, the company has no immediate plans for the liquor license. There are no plans, for example, to reopen the Roadhouse, he said.
“We bough the license to show the town we’re for real,” Juliano explained. He estimated the purchase price at $35,000.
Based in Willingboro, Delco Development LLC has been around for more than 40 years, according to the company website. It employs 175 people. Among its properties are the Aloft hotel in Mount Laurel, Miller’s Ale House restaurant in Mount Laurel, Willingboro Town Center, Jackson Center, Springfield Center and Parkway Plaza office suites in Burlington County.
Among its “In the Pipeline” projects are two Wawa convenience stores and a Starbucks.
