Chipotle Mexican Grill likely still coming to Coeur d' Alene

In the last several months, you may recall that I've reported that both Chipotle Mexican Grill and Cracker Barrel Restaurants we're both planning locations in Coeur d' Alene. Yet, as of today neither has broken ground locally.

And, while there is still no new news about the Coeur d' Alene Cracker Barrel, it looks like the Coeur d' Alene Chipotle location may actually start construction soon....

I've received a tip from someone close to the plans who says they are still in the works. Currently, ironing out permits etc... with construction start as early as September. An, opening date however is still not known.

The site for this new fast casual restaurant location is still the same... On Appleway, just east of US 95 in between Walgreen's & Tomato Street. This is where a rarely used parking lot stands today. There was also a rumor that Chipotle would locate in the strip mall next to Buffalo Wild Wings, this appears to be false.

We will continue to keep an eye out for more Chipotle news. This would be a second location for the Inland Northwest as the chain already operates one location in Spokane at 930 N. Division.
