When City Council meets next week, aldermen are expected to discuss a restaurant request by Great Saves Concepts, LLC.

According to city documents, Great Saves is an LLC managed by Wells Aitken of 2 Black Horse Terrace in Winchester.

Aitken is asking to open a "fast food restaurant" at 103 Commerce Way, which is the Petco building in the Target shopping area.

State records show that Great Saves Concepts, LLC was incorporated in May of 2011 and is managed by New England Heroes, LLC, also owned by Aitken. Both corporations cite "the development and operation of restaurants" as the "general character of the business."

According to Aitken's LinkedIn page, the Winchester resident is the chief executive officer of New England Heroes, which "will develop 5+ Firehouse Subs Restaurants over the next 3-5 years" in Medford, Burlington, Woburn, Wilmington, Andover/North Andover.

Firehouse Subs is a national chain with 525 restaurants in 32 states and Puerto Rico. There are currently only two Firehouse Subs in Massachusetts (Danvers, Boston).
