Buildout Begins to Expand Town Square Wheaton Restaurant Offering with
Addition of 302 South

WHEATON, Ill. (July 22, 2021): Town Square Wheaton, the mixed-use lifestyle center centrally located in Wheaton, Ill., announced today work has begun in the Center Circle Courtyard area of the property to prepare for the upcoming arrival of the center’s newest restaurant.

302 Wheaton, the celebrated, locally-owned eatery with a winning reputation for mouthwatering burgers, cold craft brews, bourbons and good times, will soon open a second location -- to be known as 302 South -- choosing Town Square Wheaton for its expansion.

“Our vision for Town Square Wheaton to serve as a dynamic and welcoming destination to shop, dine and frequently gather together is in perfect alignment with the concept that launched Owner Eric Schlickman’s first 302-branded establishment in the Greater Wheaton marketplace,” said Hutensky Capital Partners Vice President for Asset Management Brad Miller. “And, as our reimagination efforts continue, we are most pleased the future of Town Square Wheaton is being built by the thoughtful and deliberate cultivation of local entrepreneurs and trusted business owners with examples that include HOTWORX, Warren’s Ale House, McAlister’s Deli, Red Mango and Prairie Path Books.”

“Coming out of Covid-19, we are excited our leasing momentum remains on track to announce the names of even more locally-owned businesses from the food and beverage, health and wellness and other unique business sectors choosing to operate at Town Square Wheaton and plan to announce additional tenant names in the weeks and months ahead,” he continued.

302 South will occupy the 2,443 square foot space across from Nothing Bundt Cakes in Center Circle Courtyard at the property.

“As demolition work is now underway, we anticipate a 302 South grand opening in the fourth quarter and are already working on celebratory grand opening plans we will announce as the date grows near,” Schlickman said. “In the meantime, we are looking forward to not only expanding but joining the Town Square Wheaton family where ownership’s dedication to the property is proving successful to create a new cornerstone of community.”

With a tempting menu including its signature burgers, sandwiches, an array of sides, drinks and desserts, Town Square Wheaton’s newest restaurant will also prove a fun and frequent gathering locale as it offers a calendar of family-friendly indoor and outdoor special events, seasonal happenings and limited-time-only offers.
