Signage Up for Charleys at Germantown Wal-Mart

by Patrick Herron

Signage is up for Charleys Philly Steaks inside of the Germantown Walmart at 20910 Frederick Rd. Charleys is taking over the space formerly occupied by McDonald’s. Charleys will also be opening an additional Germantown location later this year at 19877 Century Blvd in Germantown, taking over the location that was previously home to Roll by Goodyear and Yogi Castle in the Shops at Town Center & Century Station shopping center. No opening date for the Wal-Mart Charleys has been announced.

Charleys opened a location at 405 N Frederick Ave in Gaithersburg, in the location that was recently home to Teriyaki Express, back in September and closed its Lakeforest Mall location in January.

Charleys is a Philly cheesesteak franchise that opened its first location across the campus of Ohio State University in 1986. While studying real estate at the school, Charley Shin worked in his mother’s Japanese/Korean restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. A wrong turn on a family trip to New York City resulted in Charley’s discovery of the Philly cheesesteak. Charley convinced his mother to sell her restaurant, and invest her life savings of $48,000 into Charley’s, a 450-square-foot restaurant across the street from Ohio State’s campus.
