Hey, west-siders, are you hungry for some breakfast?
You’re soon going to have a couple of new options at 29th and Maize Road.
IHOP franchisee Ali Issa plans to open a new IHOP next to the Sam’s Club at 29th and Maize Road next year.
That happens to be across the road from where a yet-to-be-named full-service breakfast restaurant is going to open at the NewMarket North development that’s now under construction.
That restaurant should open by spring.
The IHOP will break ground in February or March and open by summer.
Brad Saville of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Christian Ablah of Classic Real Estate handled the deal.
Saville also has Eastside Investments, which is a partner in the eight acres where IHOP will go.
The restaurant, which will face Sam’s Club, will be approximately 5,000 square feet. It will be the new IHOP prototype, which is similar to the one Issa opened at the Southfork development at the southwest corner of 47th Street South and I-135 earlier this year.
Unlike that building, the new IHOP will have 2,400 square feet of retail attached.
“It’ll be kind of a unique building,” Saville says.
He says design plans are underway.
Saville says he and his partners also have to build roads and put utilities in before the restaurant and retail spaces can be built.
“We’ve got work to do.”
