Verizon Wireless, located next to Downtown Crown Beer & Wine, was expecting to undergo renovations, but employees told us they were closing permanently a few days back. We are told fast-casual salad restaurant Sweetgreen will be moving in to the space next.
Sweetgreen currently has three MoCo locations, in Bethesda, Downtown Silver Spring, and Pike & Rose. Crown has been without a salad fast-casual restaurant since Chopt closed in early 2020 with plans to move that location to the Kentlands neighborhood.
There is no expected opening date for Sweetgreen, but construction is expected to begin in mid-2022.
