Caffe Nero and Wingstop to Open in Same Building in South Boston

A London-based chain of coffee shops and a Texas-based chicken wing chain are looking to open new locations in South Boston, and they will apparently be housed in the same building.

Eater Boston is reporting (via @draftgods) that Caffe Nero and Wingstop are both planning on opening at 416 W. Broadway, which is at the corner of F Street one block west of the Dorchester Street intersection. Caffe Nero currently has nine locations in the Greater Boston area (including a nearby location in Fort Point), while Wingstop has two locations in East Boston and Medford.

It is not yet known when the South Boston location of Wingstop might open, but Eater says that Caffe Nero could possibly debut in mid- to late spring in 2017.

The website for Caffe Nero can be found at http://www.caffenero.com/ while the website for http://www.wingstop.com/ is at http://www.wingstop.com/

[June 10, 2017 update: The new location of Caffe Nero could be one step closer to opening by this coming week, as the Boston Licensing Board will look into its request for a common victualler license on Wednesday, June 14. (The status of Wingstop is still not known.)]

[August 9, 2017 update: According to a tweet, Caffe Nero soft-opened in South Boston today, with the place being open from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM and serving free coffee to its customers.]
