Not Your Average Joe’s, a Middleborough-based chain with 18 locations, said it has opened a new restaurant in Warwick, R.I., near the Warwick Mall.
“The Warwick area is ready for a neighborhood place with a creative globally inspired menu, a chef in the kitchen, made-from-scratch cooking and bend-over-backwards service — a place where the food is worth dressing up for but you’re welcome to come as you are,” Steve Silverstein, the company’s founder and president, said in a statement. “As you might guess from our name, Not Your Average Joe’s was created for people who don’t like to settle for average. That applies here just as it did in Dartmouth, Mass., where I opened the first Not Your Average Joe’s 20 years ago. “We think our neighbors to in Rhode Island are going to be very glad to meet us and vice versa.”
