Just when you counted them out, here comes Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles with a brand new build-out in the heart of the city. Located at the intersection of La Brea and Washington, the upcoming spot will serve as a focal point for the brand moving forward.
Curbed laid out development plans for the new address after sneaking a peek at some city paperwork that had Roscoe’s written all over it. But it does bring up one particular question: What’s to come of the chain’s existing Mid-City location on Pico Boulevard, less than a mile away? It’s going to close, says a Roscoe’s rep, with all that business moving into the new location once it’s ready to fire.
The ground-up build means patrons will have more room to sit, staff will have more room to cook, and Roscoe’s the brand will have yet another feather in their still-expanding cap, despite the recent legal trouble they’ve found themselves in. Expect build-out to take the better part of nine months or so, which pegs an opening to sometime in early 2017. Looks like they won't need to rely on Snoop Dogg to save them after all.
