Zoës Kitchen, Chipotle Step Up to Plate of College Marketplace

College Marketplace will be located on N. College Ave. in Fayetteville, just south of the Fulbright Expressway.

Two eateries are in the pipeline to set up shop at College Marketplace in Fayetteville.

One belongs to Zoes Kitchen Inc. of Plano, Texas, which would mark the casual Mediterranean chain’s first restaurant in Arkansas. The other is Chipotle Mexican Grill, which operates four restaurants in Arkansas, including one at 550 W. Dickson St. in Fayetteville.

Groundbreaking was held last week for the 35,000-SF Whole Foods store at 3535 N. College Ave., which will anchor College Marketplace. Whole Foods is scheduled to open in late 2015 and expected to hire about 150 employees.

In addition to Zoes and Chipotle, we’re told the 5-acre development will become home for six to eight more tenants.
