Looks like a couple of large national restaurant chains are going to be investing in Spokane by opening new locations in the coming months.
Because they are only in the permitting phases ( actually, as of typing this, neither has a issued permit ) we don't know when they will open, or how many they will employ. But the city's records show these 2 new restaurants coming....
Denny's on the Division St. hill.
This one is interesting because of it being only a few blocks north of Gonzaga and the University District. It also is in a very heavy traffic area, with the address to be 3525 N. Division St , at the corner of N. Division and Gordon.
Current plans for the new Denny's to be built on a vacant site directly at the corner with a portion of the building to the south to be demolished to make way for parking spaces to service the Denny's.
The new building is purposed to be about 4,500 square feet, with construction beginning in June. Interestingly enough the record also notes construction is planned to take about 90 days. Really is amazing how fast building can be built.
Jack in the Box on Northwest Blvd.
Planned to be built at 1511 W. Northwest Blvd is a new Jack in the Box fast food restaurant.
While the address of this new Jack in the Box is on Northwest Blvd. plans show it to actually be built on the corner of Northwest and Maple. Current plans show a 3,000 square foot restaurant building with drive through and parking area.
If it goes as planned construction on this new restaurant will also start in June, with a completion date about 90 days out from then.
The site is currently vacant.
