From our friend David Phillips (aka Mr. Inland Empire), we learned that Cracker Barrel, Septembers and Coffee Nutzz (among others) were in the works.
Rialto’s monthly City Administrator updates have mentioned Sonic and Chick-fil-A.
Here’s the list of eateries that a pair of maps indicates will open at or near the center:
- Ahipoki Bowl
- Blaze Pizza
- California Fish Grill
- Coffee Nutzz
- Cracker Barrel
- Dickey’s Barbecue Pit
- El Pollo Loco
- The Habit Burger Grill
- Jamba Juice
- Ono Hawaiian BBQ
- Panera Bread
- Pho ’77
- Septembers Tap Room and Grill
- Sonic Drive-In
- TGI Fridays
- WaBa Grill
- Which Wich
In addition, the following eateries have also been mentioned in connection with the project:
The developer’s website for the center confirms many of the names.
The majority of eateries will be in the Renaissance Marketplace itself, which is on the west side of Ayala Drive, south of the 210 Freeway. Cracker Barrel and Sonic are planned as part of an adjacent project on the east side of Ayala Drive, apparently dubbed Renaissance East.
At this point, it seems most of the retailers and restaurants are expected to open in spring of next year, but a 7-Eleven and the Starbucks — both in the northern portion of the project — might open before the end of this year.
