Nick’s Tomatoe Pie might be replaced in Jupiter


3 THINGS TO KNOW

Nick’s Tomatoe Pie restaurant could be demolished in Jupiter

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

Tearing down Nick’s Tomatoe Pie restaurant on Indiantown Road and replacing it with a Chick-fil-A restaurant has been proposed for Sims Creek Plaza on the northside of Indiantown Road, just east of Center Street. Nick’s Tomatoe Pie, which employs 60 and opened about 25 years ago, will remain open while the plan is under consideration. Nick’s would move into another location in Sims Creek Plaza if the plan is approved, according to owner Nick Chiantese.

WHAT’S NEXT?

The plan, submitted to the town by Deerfield Beach-based Corporate Property Services Inc. on Dec. 14, calls for replacing Nick’s Tomatoe Pie with a Chick-fil-A about half the size. There would be two drive-through stops for customers. The town’s planning and zoning commission tentatively is scheduled to hear the plan on Feb. 9. Town commission approval also is required.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU?

Nick’s Tomatoe Pie opens every day at 4:30 p.m. Chick-fil-A has restaurants in Palm Beach Gardens, Boynton Beach, Royal Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Lake Park and other locations that are open longer hours. The 5-acre Sims Creek Plaza now has an insurance company, fitness center, retail stores, a hobby shop, hair solon and other businesses.
