Mayors' Corner

Business is Booming in Randolph, More to Open in 2018

Business is booming in Randolph!  While serving as Mayor this year, I have had the pleasure of attending several Grand Opening events and welcoming new businesses to Randolph. These new businesses certainly enhance our community and bring benefits to residents.   

Powerflow Yoga and International Martial Arts, two new businesses helping residents stay fit, recently opened on Middlebury Boulevard.

Expanding our dining choices in Randolph, Noches de Colombia opened its doors offering Colombian food specialties, a bar, bakery and live music.  A completely renovated and expanded Randolph Diner celebrated the grand opening of its second floor perfect for private events.  Rosie’s Trattoria on Sussex Turnpike is expanding their bar and dining areas and adding an outdoor patio and second floor.

In June, LiveWell Pharmacy, a family owned pharmacy, opened at College Plaza and Salus per Aquam, which offers a full line of spa services, also opened in Randolph.

Other businesses that are expected to open in the next few months in Randolph include:

  • Weis Market which has leased the former A&P space in Center Grove Plaza
  • Wendy’s fast food restaurant which is under construction on Route 10
  • Dickerson Dental Group will be opening a two-story, 12,000 square foot medical office building on the corner of Dover Chester Road and Route 10
  • Primrose School of Randolph will be providing preschool and child care services at their Middlebury Boulevard location

In addition, the owners of the (former) Kmart Plaza are completing renovations to the property, replacing the facades and giving the shopping center an aesthetic makeover.  They expect to announce a new anchor tenant for the 110,000 square foot space formerly occupied by Kmart very soon.

Other exciting plans for new businesses in Randolph include construction of an 8400 square foot retail building at the corner of West Hanover Avenue and Sussex Turnpike and a new veterinary hospital, animal kennel and retail building on Sussex Turnpike opposite Millbrook Avenue.

The Board of Adjustment has also received an application for the development of a Wawa convenience store and gas station on Route 10 at the site of the former Nagel’s Candy Barn.  It is anticipated that the application will be heard by the Board of Adjustment in early 2018.

Randolph Township works closely with local businesses and those seeking to open businesses in Randolph and is proactive in maintaining a balanced and vibrant business community.  The Randolph Township Economic Development Committee (EDC), which consists of 10 volunteer members appointed by the Township Council, is charged with promoting opportunities for business in the township, assisting in the development of reasonable business policies, and researching and monitoring Randolph’s economy.  In addition, the Randolph Chamber of Commerce is also a very active and important organization which represents the needs of local organizations on business related issues.   http://randolphchamber.org/  The president of the Randolph Chamber of Commerce is also a member of the EDC.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact me at ccarey@randolphnj.org or 973-985-2623.
