A local sandwich establishment is moving into the old KFC building at the corner of Rolling Hills Drive and College Avenue.

According to owner Nikki Golden, TJ’s Sandwich Shop will make the short move across the street from their current location into the new building.

The space, located at 2992 N. College Ave., will provide some more visibility for the business, and another feature that Golden said she’s excited about.

“We are very excited about the move. We will have a drive thru!” she said.

TJ’s was first opened in 2014 by Nikki and her husband Todd Golden, the longtime local restauranteurs who also operate Mermaid’s Seafood Restaurant on College Avenue, and were also behind the well loved Belvedere’s restaurant in Fiesta Square years ago.

As the name suggests, TJ’s focuses on sandwiches, along with salads, soups and other items.

If all goes well, the new restaurant will be up and running by the first week of June, Nikki told us.
