(ABC 6 News) -- The Crossroads Shopping Center in Rochester may soon have a new restaurant.

The "Buffalo Wild Wings coming soon" sign has been there for several years. However; it's the burger joint Newt's that may build there instead.

The proposed Newt's building will have smaller footprint than Buffalo Wild Wings, which means parking won't be as much of an issue. It's still in the planning stages, but many see it as a win-win.

“Rochester is going to grow and grow with the DMC and that's wonderful, we're thrilled to be a part of it, I mean my brother and I are both natives of Rochester, born here, grew up here, so yeah it feels wonderful,” said Dave Currie, Newt’s Owner.

"It'll definitely increase our store traffic just having a nice neighbor locally owned company next to us,” said Ted Alberts, Manager at Andy’s Liquor.

If all goes as planned, the owners hope to open within six months.
