Which wich, a restaurant chain based in Dallas, Texas, will open its newest store in Shorewood sometime this year.
The new restaurant at 968 Brookforest Ave. will be located in the Shorewood Crossings Shopping Center near the intersection of Black Road and Route 59.
Established in 2003, the chain now includes 423 locations worldwide, including 8 in the Chicagoland area including the newest Shorewood location.
The restaurants specialize in giving customers control over the customization of their sandwich orders and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Shorewood’s community development director Karen James said that the new opening is a result of their partnership with The Retail Coach, a retail-development consulting firm based in Mississippi.
The village approved a 1-year contract with the firm in 2014 at a cost of $40,000 to provide market analysis of the village’s retail climate and economic development assistance to attract new businesses to town.
“We know that they will be successful,” said James in a statement.
