There's been a lot of talk recently of restaurant chains opening first time locations in the Quad Cities.
National chains Freddy's Steakburgers, Firehouse Subs, and Jersey Mike's Subs are all opening new locations in Davenport in the coming months.
But the talk of another chain coming the the Quad Cities has social media abuzz.
We reached out to Portillo's to confirm the claim and they shared the following statement from Nick Scarpino, Portillo’s Vice-President of Marketing and Public Relations:
“Portillo’s continues to explore expansion throughout the Midwest. However, we do not have any updates to share regarding new locations at this time.”
The company went on to say that they would keep us posted on any developments.
So...that mean's a BIG MAYBE IN MOLINE?!?! The Facebook page below (devoted to bringing the chain to town) explains the process.....
