Here's What's Poppin' in Waterloo closed for two weeks due to staffing issues. The announcement from late May specifically said that the owner wanted to, "prevent burnout on my existing dedicated employees."

The Waterloo location was meant to stay closed until May 29th, but once they reopened they promptly decided to close this location permanently.

You can order most of their products on their online snack shop store. They also are involved with various community events, so you'll still get a chance to go and support the local business.

After several months, there is finally word on a new business moving into the location in Downtown Waterloo. It will now be home to the brick-and-mortar location of Hungry Charlie's.

Hungry Charlie's is a food truck that has popped up all around the Cedar Valley for the past year or so; serving gyros, chicken sandwiches, hotdogs and much more.

The business owners of the restaurant have confirmed that they signed the lease for the building on Monday in a social media post, which can be found down below.


The new eatery will be called Hungry Charlie's Lunch Box, and they will serve gourmet panini sandwiches, salads, and soups. As of right now, the goal is for this restaurant to be open for business in a month.

The location of this new restaurant is 206 East 4th Street in Waterloo.

There are plenty of other restaurants opening up in the Cedar Valley right now. Several new spots have opened this summer in Cedar Falls. A take-out-friendly restaurant called  Carter House opened right next to the Black Hawk Hotel. In addition, a restaurant located in the same spot as Santa's Workshop in Cedar Falls just opened its doors, it's called Georges.
