Wanted: Friendly Ideas to Fill an Empty Space

If you could wave the magic wand to fill the vacant Friendly's with anything, what would it be?

The 'Boro has its fair share of vacant buildings and shops, don't you think? Some have sat vacant for years while other see businesses rotate in and out.

But, if you could have a business occupy an empty location what would you like to see happen? Each week, we'll feature one empty space, building, lot or area in Attleboro and our eaders what they would like to see if they had the power to fill that space.

We want to hear what you'd like to see occupy Attleboro. Sound off in the comments section below!

I say yes to that idea. Something like North Attleboro's Soup Works. They have the best homemade items, soups, salads, etc. They started out small and delivered to my former employer's work for lunches. I don't know if they still deliver, but they would thrive in Attleboro. Great idea Nick!!

Glad to know you'd have a interest im currentlly workin on having a group open that i know so they have a strong interest in doing that once its open for sale the realtor is currentlly fixing something but yes homemade soups will be a large thing for us hoping to offer over 6 kinds of soups from chowders to stews and more

I would ask that you include some type of homemade bread or roll as a side for the soup/chowder. Also, chili is a great idea with some corn bread and low sodium. You can do a lot with soups and they are so hearty. Other than that I would not get too fancy. Too much can be so overwhelming. Keep it simple but change the menu everyday to include one soup/chowder of the day. I would urge you to take a look at the menu that they have at Soup Works. They do up a monthly menu with a different soup a day and they make there own rolls to go with the soup. Keep us posted on the progress of this.

yes thats what we seem to have most ideas about is that and prefferablly a meal and soup of the day with chilli as well and we are hoping for a nice mid sized menu with unique meals that were a sunday typed meal back in the day and we are also geared toward a strong breakfeast on the weekends
