Column: With Starbucks, vacant restaurant building could be sizzlin’ again

The former Sizzler/Sizzlin restaurant on Upland’s Foothill Boulevard might come down in favor of a Starbucks. The Sizzlin knockoff of the previous Sizzler comes in for some ribbing (or Malibu chicken-ing). Also, downtown Ontario is getting a Starbucks too, and that city may also get a giant warehouse for a major apparel manufacturer. All the (business) news that’s fit to print is in my Friday column.

    Somewhat sad to see any restaurant sit empty for so long, you would think it could just become something else. Maybe there’s more to it

      It’s an old (1971) building that isn’t really a classic. I’m guessing the new-ish landlords were choosy about new tenants, wanted something that would pop and were overjoyed that a Starbucks wanted the spot.
