This is the first location for the restaurant, and there are plans in the works to open another in Canton, said Scott Nail, director of operations for Squares Restaurant.
Nail said business was “excellent” early on Tuesday and that a lot of people were coming into the restaurant.
“We had our opening day promotion with our free breakfast sandwich, and it went very well,” Nail said. “We had very successful opening day.”
According to the Squares Restaurant website, the menu offers items like omelets, salads and sandwiches made on their “Signature Squares,” which is a white or whole grain flatbread.
Nail said the restaurant’s trademark is, “Always fresh, all the time,” and the food is prepared in front of the customers.
“We have an open kitchen that our guests can travel up and down,” Nail said. “The customer’s food is prepared in their view, and they can watch the whole meal being made.”
Nail said that the location in downtown Ann Arbor should help the new restaurant’s business.
“We have a great location right here in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor,” Nail said. “There are the parking garage construction projects and the post office across the street. I think we’ve got a great venue here.”
The location most recently was Yoshi's, which closed in January. The lease for the Squares deal was negotiated in early summer.
