Cerritos Lifer February 15, 2013 at 07:30 AM
One thing we are missing in Cerritos are more NICE western style sit down restaurants. We have a ton of nice Asian sit down restaurants (missing a notable few though, see #3) but where is the Cheesecake Factory, Grand Lux Cafe, the Old Spaghetti Factory, Elephant Bar, Bucca Di Beppo, Maggianos etc? We do have a handful but if we could reach out to those chains they would be perfect for the longstanding empty nice buildings at the Towne Center (right by the Bloomfield exit). They would fulfill a commercial need for the people of cerritos and thus would be very profitable! 3) Cerritos has a ton of asians- so one way to fill our empty storefronts and TO KEEP THEM FILLED is to attract businesses that have proven to be a hit among asians.. Where is the Marukai and Daiso? What about franchises of Coconut Bay or Banana Bay? Famous restaurants like Jazz Cat, Daikokuya, Boiling Crab, and desert/pastry places like Phoenix and 85 Degrees bakery are missing from the scene. I'm frankly surprised why they wouldn't want to open franchises in Cerritos- it seems like an opportunity for both parties. I don't care which we get more of 2) or 3), but we need to fill in our empty storefronts with businesses that are actually popular or fill a business need and we need to be aggressive to attract them.
