WILKES-BARRE TWP., PA — Five national chain restaurants opened in the area last year and two more are slated to open soon. Two others — Pizza Hut and Lone Star — went out of business last month.
So has area’s restaurant bubble finally popped?
No, said John Bartorillo, president of Maslow Lumia Bartorillo Advertising in Wilkes-Barre.
“Saturated? No,” said Bartorillo. “We have not reached that point yet.”
