Sentinel staff report– Renderings of a new Boston’s Pizza restaurant and sports bar in Citrus Heights show plans for the addition of an outdoor seating area and a face-lift at the former Logan’s Roadhouse restaurant at 5511 Sunrise Blvd.
Plans for the new pizza restaurant were submitted to the City of Citrus Heights last month, with proposed changes to the exterior still awaiting approval from the city’s planning division.
The project does not require approval by the Planning Commission, as the existing building will remain intact and the changes are categorized as a “re-occupancy of an existing building,” Alison Bermudez, an associate planner with the City of Citrus Heights, previously told The Sentinel.
Boston’s Pizza is a Canadian-based restaurant chain with over 40 locations in the United States and Mexico, with Citrus Heights on tap to be the first location in northern California. The chain’s menu includes burgers, sandwiches, pizza, pastas, ribs and other entrees.
Franchisee Gurtej Gill confirmed plans for the new restaurant last week, and the plans and renderings also appear on the city’s website. Interior demolition at the restaurant has already begun.
A media spokesperson for Boston’s Pizza told The Sentinel last week that it was too early to give an estimated opening date for the location, noting that plans are still in the permitting stage.
