Archie Moore's

Archie Moores is coming to Branford.

The well-known restaurant chain known for its wings will be coming to Branford center, in the former Asti’s location, at 988 Main Street.

Sources indicated an agreement is set to be finalized this week.

Archie Moores could be a major factor in energizing the town center, which has suffered in recent years from declining retail. The former Asti location is set in an area that typically slows considerably after 5 PM, and sits behind the vacant former Trailblazer location.

Archies Moore's currently has 5 locations in the state.

We will update this story as more information becomes available. 

Do you welcome the addition of Archie Moores to Branford Center?

Do you welcome a new Archie Moores to Branford center?

More traffic and parking issues

Guest

Cry about it

Guest

Get over it!! Then people like you complain about taxes going up

Guest

Then don’t go there

Guest

Oh please all there is now is real estate offices and a couple nail salons. We need a restaurant and more retail

Guest

Book Store too

Guest

Thank you! Totally agree! Branford center needs life needs restaurants, places to shop not real state only?? Why are there so many ?

Guest

Then stay home.

Guest

WAHHHWAHHHWAHHH, I CANT WAIT FOR THOSE WINGS!!!

Guest

Traffic is the lifeblood of any commercial district. No traffic, no business. Certainly there are other routes to take, if you wish to avoid the area.

Guest

Seems like an awfully small location for them.

Guest

Does seem small but want them here.

Guest

I agree. It is a rather small space for that chain, I'd rather see them take over the old Denali store front. Bigger space with great window frontage on Main Street.

But, if Asti is to be their new home, so be it. Bring it on!!!

Guest

That’s what I was thinking.

Guest

To small they need a larger place with more parking

Guest

I thought they were moving into the Su Casa location?

Guest

Building issues at that location

Guest

Same

Guest

NOTHING LASTS IN THAT AREA

Guest

That would be great if Archie Moore's came to Branford, best wings in the world, cozy atmosphere, fun times...DO IT !

Guest

This is great! Let’s all come out and support this great restaurant!

Guest

Why did Asti's go out of business? I was told to try it and never did

Guest

That's why....

Guest

Bad location. Hidden. Won't attract drive by customers.

Guest

Already has their great reputation. Doesn’t need drive bys

Guest

Yes totally excited about this !!!

Now let’s get some more businesses here like Bjs , Stew Leonard’s , etc. great news

Guest

Good question- wish you did ! It was really good ! So sad they went out if businesses:( makes me sad restaurants or any business go out of business because people are also out of jobs :(

Guest

They should go into Margaritas.. Perfect spot.

Guest

That was my thought as well. More space and parking. Plus right on rte 1

Guest

Margaritas location was sold for new development.

Guest

MARGARHITA'S IS BEING TORN DOWN AND MADE INTO APARTMENT

Guest

Yes that would be a great spot but if it’s a done deal then the green it is !!!

Guest

People who work in office's need beer, Yes Please.

Carol

I love that Archie Moore's is coming to Branford but I too wish they'd take over the Margarita's restaurant. Or maybe Outback!! Much better location!!

Guest

[thumbup] downtown needs some energizing and something to draw people. Can’t have a thriving downtown area with just RE offices and nail salons.

Guest

AWESOME!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Can't wait for Archie Moore's, but people who say we need more restaurants on the green obviously don't get out much. In about a 150 yard stretch there is GZen, Shoreline, a pizza place, Scotty's, Donovan's, Home, Thai restaurant, Common Grounds, Darbar, Le Petite Cafe, Ashley's, Pasta Cosi, Japanese place. Explore a little bit people.
