Montgomeryville Friendly's Closes Its Doors

The restaurant at Airport Square Shopping Center shuttered its doors Sunday afternoon, after its lease wasn't renewed. Bonefish Grill will open in the next few months

The Friendly’s at Airport Square Shopping Center on Route 309 in Montgomeryville has closed its doors for good Sunday afternoon, making way for Bonefish Grill to open at the location in the next few months.

Mike Goldberg of The Reporter writes that a work crew was hauling out kitchen equipment, booths and more to a moving truck.

The franchise owner, Jeff Blum, of AKZ Delaware Valley Hospitality Inc., told Goldberg the owner of the property — Gateway DC Properties Inc., under Metro Commercial of Mount Laurel, NJ — opted not to renew the lease.

Blum operates 11 other Friendly’s restaurants, including one in Ft. Washington, according to the article.

Blum was also the franchisee of the Friendly’s that closed earlier this year in Hatfield Township on North Broad Street.

Blum told Goldberg employees were given the option to transfer to other Friendly’s locations. He said he hopes to reopen at another location in Montgomery Township.

I liked this Friendly's Restaurant. Sorry to see it go. Hope another Friendly's opens in the same general area.

Doggie Style at 20 Airport Sq. North Wales closed down the store today without telling employees and customers. Employees came to the store to find everything packed up and gone. A lot of dogs have been hurt and abused by this company.
