The new location is at 400 W. Holly St., next to the city’s Maritime Heritage Park. The restaurant’s owners, Tony and Angie Nguyen, opened the original Soy House in Bellingham’s Bakerview Square shopping complex in 2008.
The Nguyens have spent the past several months overseeing the remodel of their new downtown location, which is the former home of the Boss Tweed restaurant.
In other local restaurant and food-service activity, building permits for several new food-related businesses popped up in recent filings from the city.
– A building permit was issued for a new restaurant and delicatessen at 113 N. Samish Way, called Goodfellers Gourmet Grinders.
– Preliminary permit materials were submitted for a new TCBY location in the Bellis Fair Mall food court. The mall is currently undergoing its first significant renovation in the past decade.
The renovation to the 773,000-square-foot shopping center, located at 1 Bellis Fair Parkway in north Bellingham, will include aesthetic updates to its main entrances, new floor tile, new food-court amenities, including a fireplace with an attached video wall, as well as redesigned restrooms and an upgraded children’s play area.
The project is on schedule to be completed by Nov. 22, Jean Marohn, Bellis Fair’s marketing coordinator, told The Bellingham Business Journal last month.
