Cafe Rio, Wake Up Call and Swig all coming soon to The Pointe at Post Falls

 More new restaurants are coming a growing area of Post Falls. Although they are all still in the planning stages with exact details presently being ironed out, before they can actually break ground. The plans call for three new places by the southwest side of the W. Pointe Pkwy and Beck Rd. interchange, across from Maverik.

Garco Construction will be the general contractor for the project that with the following places all planned-

Cafe Rio - Planned to open in a new 2800 square foot building direct at the Pointe Pkwy./Beck Rd junction. Plans show the new restaurant will include a drive thru lane and a small outdoor seating area.

Wake Up Call - Planned to be a new 490 square foot drive thru building directly to the west of Cafe Rio.

Swig - Planned to be in a new 1500 square foot building due west of the Wake Up Call this will be the first location of the Swig chain in the Inland Northwest. The St. George,UT based company sells "dirty sodas" which have proven to be quite popular lately in addition to a few cookies.

There aren't set opening dates for any of these new businesses just yet but we expect construction to start as soon as they are able. This is the same development area which recently built two other new buildings, one a new Napa Auto Parts store and the other a small strip mall with locations of Wendy's , The Man Shop and Joint Chiropractic all coming.

Unrelated to this exact site but adjacent to it within The Pointe at Post Falls will also be a new Starbucks coffee shop which recently applied for building permits along Beck Rd., just southwest of the existing Maverik store. After many years of sitting empty, with the exception of Walmart and Cabelas, The Pointe at Post Falls is now proving to be a development hot spot for the area. Stay tuned to this site as I plan to keep track of each and every development in the area.
