Not Your Average Joe's to Open in Waltham and Westwood; Headquarters Moving to Milton

A small local chain of restaurants is going to be expanding, with two new spots in the works--and its headquarters will be moving closer to Boston as well.

The Patriot Ledger is reporting that Not Your Average Joe's is planning to open locations in both Waltham and Westwood sometime next year, with this being part of an expansion plan that could include the opening of three to five new restaurants per year. (A location in Nashua, NH, will open later this year as well.) In addition, CEO Stephen Silverstein is going to be moving the chain's offices from Middleboro to Milton, with the move taking place in October.

Not Your Average Joe's, which first started out in 1994 with a restaurant in Dartmouth, MA, currently has 20 locations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. Its website can be found at
