A new family-owned quick service restaurant is coming to town. 

Commercial real estate services firm Levin Management Corporation (LMC) has arranged a 1,500-square-foot lease with Flame Kabob House at Rutgers Plaza in Franklin Township.

“Rutgers Plaza’s proximity to Rutgers University, a diverse and growing local population, and the presence of strong anchor tenants make it a great location for Flame Kabob House,” said Jordan Korris, LMC leasing representative, who arranged the long-term lease. “In turn, high-quality fast-casual dining options are welcome additions to any shopping center, and Flame Kabob House is no exception.”

The new location represents the second New Jersey restaurant for the family-owned and operated Afghan/Middle Eastern concept, according to LMC, exclusive leasing and managing agent for the 266,000-square-foot retail property.

Flame Kabob House provides a full menu of affordably priced authentic Afghan and Middle Eastern food, along with a variety of other choices, including burgers, sandwiches, wings, salads and more.

"Our quick service restaurant provides a wonderful atmosphere for everyone and plenty of seating to enjoy your dining experience with us," Flame Kabob House's website says. "We take great pride in preparing our food, which is made from fresh and the finest ingredients. Come and enjoy the great food and try it for yourself."

Anchored by Stop & Shop and Kmart, Rutgers Plaza features an evolving dining component. Another ethnic restaurant, Moral’s Village Hot Pot, is set to open there soon. The property features a complimentary lineup of national and regional tenants including Crunch Fitness, Dollar Tree, GNC, GameStop, Burger King, T-Mobile, Plaza Cleaners and Chase Bank.

Well-located on Easton Avenue at Kennedy Boulevard, Rutgers Plaza serves a growing residential population estimated at more than 265,000 people within a five-mile radius, and a daytime population of more than 156,000 people within those same five miles. The daily traffic count on Easton Avenue exceeds 39,000 vehicles.

LMC is marketing multiple additional space availabilities at Rutgers Plaza, ranging from 1,800 to 20,800 square feet.
