Smoothie King and Jersey Mike’s Subs have signed leases for space just west of Park Place on East Broadway.

If a sub and a smoothie sound like a tasty combination, two neighboring eateries on the city’s east side will soon offer both.

Smoothie King and Jersey Mike’s Subs have signed leases for space just west of Park Place on East Broadway.

The vacant spaces are being reconfigured by developers for three retail tenants. The third lease is being finalized, said Brian Johnson, principal with Property Nine Development.

The Smoothie King will have a drive-thru.

The site, in the 5700 block of East Broadway, was originally going to be redeveloped for Red Robin, but the chain changed its mind about the location, Johnson said, so the property was instead divided for three smaller tenants.

Nancy McClure, with CBRE, represented Property Nine.

The new shops are expected to open in early 2020.
