Wellesley Restaurant Group has announced plans to open a fourth location of The Local, with the newest one to be situated in Woburn this fall.

Owners and Wellesley residents Tom and Tricia Wynn and Frank and Stacey Santo first purchased The Local (formerly R.J. Crowley’s) in Newton in 2008. They then opened the Wellesley spot in November of 2014, followed by a Wayland restaurant shortly thereafter.

The 100-seat Local in Woburn will be located at 350 Cambridge Rd., in the Whole Foods shopping center.
