It’s the second restaurant in the chain to close in N.J. in past two months

Pei Wei, the budget fast Asian food restaurant, has more than 200 locations nationwide but is now down to only one in New Jersey.

The Pei Wei at the Marketplace at Garden State Park in Cherry Hill closed over the weekend. It’s the second sudden closing over of a Pei Wei in this area over the past two months.

“After close evaluation of the market, we’ve made the difficult decision to close our Cherry Hill location,” said Brandon Solano a company executive said Thursday. “We thank our loyal guests for their support.”

A location at the Moorestown Mall, less than five miles from the Cherry Hill location, closed in August. The only location in the state is in Princeton. Other locations in Maryland and Florida have also closed recently.

With menu items like gluten-free Asian chopped chicken salad and a target price point of $5, the chain had gained a following.

It was spun off from the P.F. Chang restaurant group in 2000 with a mission of creating “Asian-inspired dishes without compromising freshness for speed of service.”
