NORTH PROVIDENCE – The former Friendly’s restaurant at 1833 Mineral Spring Ave., which was the last of the chain in Rhode Island when it abruptly closed in August of 2019, will soon host filming of Nickelodeon’s ”Good Burger 2”.

Pre-production crews were on site this week constructing the fictitious burger restaurant and confirmed to The Breeze that it will indeed be the site for filming. Boston Casting is currently recruiting actors and extras for the film, as confirmed by the Rhode Island Film and Television Office.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
