In March, I came across an article by Adam Horvath who writes for Jersey Bites. He was writing about three popular food brands that originated at the Jersey Shore, specifically in Point Pleasant. The companies are now nationally known and as you probably know he was going into detail about Jersey Mike's Subs, Bubbakoo's Burritos, and Surf Taco Coastal Cuisine. They are multimillion-dollar companies that plan to keep growing. So I started thinking, "what's the next big food chain to come out of the Jersey Shore?"

After reading Adam's article, that same week, I posted a piece that was titled "The Future! The Next Big Jersey Shore Food Chain Is From Belmar". The feedback was tremendous and many people agreed that Hoagitos could easily be the next big food chain to come out of the Jersey Shore. With only one location in the Belmar Plaza, at the time, my opinion might have been far-fetched but with the recent news of Hoagitos adding a new location, my random thought could become a reality.

With that, a huge congratulations to Hoagitos! The delicious sandwich shop will be adding a new location in the Oakhurst Towne Center, which is located on Route 35 North. The Oakhurst Towne Center also is home to Rook Coffee, Broad Street Dough Co, and Playa Bowls. The new storefront is currently being built and according to NJ.com, Hoagitos plans to build an open-air front design with a dining area featuring a ledge that doubles as seating for customers. Hoagitos hopes to open the new Oakhurst location sometime in July. (KEEP SCROLLING FOR MOUTHWATERING PICTURES)
