The long awaited "Favorites" off-track wagering and sports bar opens today in Gloucester Township. Their facebook page says the doors open July 2nd at 11:30am. The location is on Blackwood Clementon Rd, at the former Stone Grill location.
The website lists:
- 130 flat screen TVs
- 50 seat bar
- 40 private wagering carrels
- Outside Patio
Like the Toms River faciltiy, the Gloucester Township facility will be under the Freehold Raceway license.
According to the Courier-Post, a similar facility in Vineland generates $12 million a year in revenue, Toms River $32 million, and presumably because of area population the Blackwood facility is expected to fall in the middle around $15-20 million dollars per year.
The location does seem to be a good one, with a lot of road traffic, and large communities nearby such as Deptford and Washington Twp.
A key feature they are promoting to New Jersey residents "Forget the tolls!"
