What Business Would You Open in Foxborough?

Your imagination is the only limit, what would you open in Foxborough?

Imagine you had the tools and resources at your disposal - what business would you like to open in Foxborough?  What would work in the community?

Here were some ideas from the Foxborough Patch Facebook page:

Liz Perry: Starbucks! It would be nice to have an option besides Dunkies or Honey Dew.

Ashley-Nicole Celaya: Starbucks absolutely.

Andrea Brown: Starbucks or a local coffee shop. I don't drink Dunkin Donuts coffee and Honey Dew isn't much better.

Colin McGuire: Another gas station near exit 8. I guess technically that might be Sharon, but it is amazing how clustered gas stations are in our town.

A M Flaherty Piscitelli: Definitely Starbucks! 

Pattiann Hamlin Malynn: Bakery.

Tim Burke: A casino.

Joe Fiumara: REAL Italian bakery.

Rick Sheehy: Wegman's! Big Y is never coming so fix it by building a Wegmans.

Beth Rayner-Zyskowski: PANERA!!!

Zsanett Peimli: Konditormeister.

Zsanett Peimli: Consignment store for sports stuff (like sport2sport)

Jack Colwell: Walmart.

Jackie Morse Wilson: Market Basket grocery store!

Katie Bates: I would love a non-chain (or small chain) coffee shop.

Melissa Salluce Block: Starbucks, Market Basket and yes Panera!

Kelly McDonough: A real bakery/coffee shop that sells great pastries and great coffee drinks. A place where people can go hang out and relax, where there can be open mic nights. It would be awesome!

Janet Lonergan-Spinney: Panera Bread, Market Basket, ski shop, Ruth Chris Steak House, upscale bakery or an amusement park.

Celeste Kane: A decent restaurant ... not a chain ... and definitely not another Chinese.

Sandy Marvelli: Market Basket and Panera please!

Andrea Pelrine- Avallone: A bakery because there isn't one near.

Meus Bartolome Kaveny: A bakery/coffee shop like White's in Brockton.

Definitely a bakery. There is The Pastry Box in Plainville but would be nice to have an alternative.

I so badly wanted to see a Walmart come in where the old Bradlees used to be!! At least there's a Dollar Tree in there, that is somewhat helpful.

A really cool gallery. Encompassing several businesses of course. Such as Cindi's Diamond & Jewelry Gallery, a clothing boutique, snazzy shoe store, a cafe with internet and super yummy treats, a vegan cafe and a frilly pet shop.

Starbucks would be a dream come true. Could use a car wash too. Walmart?! There's enough traffic on 140 near the old Bradlees. I tweeted to Starbucks about a foxboro location. I will show them this article. Thanks.
