Big things are happening in the Spokane mall food courts and the more noticable is the new lack of Bruchi's . Bruchi's Cheesesteak and Subs is a Spokane based fast service resturant chain that operate several locations but recently both their Northtown Mall and Spokane Valley Mall locations have closed.
The rumor (and it is only a rumor, I have not yet confirmed this...) is that the mall owner's General Growth Properties has increased the rent on the units. This however is only speculation.
But Spokanites looking for quick meal while they do their shopping at the mall won't have any problem feeding their hunger as both locations are / have been replaced by Subway Resturants .Subway has already opened in the former Bruchi's spot next to Cinabon in the Spokane Valley Mall food court and will open soon in the Northtown Mall food court inbetween Panda Express(which is also a newer resturant for the mall) and Claire's.
Bruchi's as a company is far from closed however ,the chain will soon open a new location of their own on 29th St on the South Hill.
Elsewhere in the food courts a new asian option is opening on the other end of the Northtown Mall food court,that resturant is called Miso . Miso will be located next to Arby's in the former Edo Japan space.
