FORT SMITH, Ark. — A Chipotle Mexican Grill will open in Fort Smith later this year and will be part of a multi-tenant redevelopment of the former Logan’s Roadhouse restaurant in the northeast corner of Rogers Avenue and Interstate 540.
Eric Nelson, principal and vice president of brokerage for Little Rock-based Moses Tucker Partners, confirmed with Talk Business & Politics that the restaurant company has signed a lease for the Fort Smith space. The former Logan’s building and property is owned by Fort Smith businessman Bennie Westphal, who is a co-owner of Talk Business & Politics.
Nelson said the about 10,500-square-foot building will be gutted on the inside and a new facade will be built. He said Chipotle will be the anchor store in the development and will be located on the west side of the property with a drive-thru. The development cost is around $2 million, Nelson said.
Fort Smith architect Scott Hathaway is working with Nelson and Westphal on the redevelopment, and Fort Smith-based Gateway Construction is overseeing the work.
