Starbucks, Jersey Mike's among new businesses to open in Whiting

MANCHESTER – Starbucks and Jersey Mike’s are coming to the township’s Whiting section. 

The township Planning Board recently approved a new retail building on Lacey Road, a part of the Stop & Shop-anchored Whiting Commons.

Starbucks, seen here on Jan. 14, 2022, opens its first standalone cafe in Toms River on Jan. 21, 2022.

The 8,951-square-foot building, which will be built on what is now vacant land, already has three tenants signed up: Starbucks, including a drive-thru lane and an outdoor seating area, Jersey Mike’s Subs and an AT&T store.

The center’s owner, Paramount Realty Services, is in talks with a national retail chain for the fourth space in the building.

A timetable for construction was not available. 

The new building adds to Whiting Commons and will be located next to Wendy’s.

“This center has become the epicenter and gateway to Whiting,” said Maurice Zekaria, president of Lakewood-based Paramount Realty Services, which also manages the center.

“Whiting has experienced consistent residential growth over the years, and we expect Starbucks and Jersey Mike’s to thrive.”
