March 31, 2019

HONOLULU (AP) — A popular Hawaii restaurant chain has purchased land in Las Vegas to open its first location outside the state.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Zippy’s Restaurants announced plans last week to open a 7,000-square-foot (650-square-meter) restaurant and bakery at the corner of Badura Avenue and Montessouri Street in southwest Las Vegas.

The Honolulu-based company says the new restaurant is expected to open next year. The Las Vegas location will serve the chain’s standards, including Zip Pacs, Zippy’s chili, Korean fried chicken and more than 100 other items.

CEO Jason Higa says in a statement the new location will be in a growing part of the city and near the 215 Beltway.

He says the site will provide easy access to the central production facility to support the opening of more restaurants.
