Newk’s Eatery has signed on as the first tenant for the soon-to-be-completed Country Club Plaza retail development in the Pinnacle Hills area of Rogers.
Scheduled to open in the spring, the location will be Newk’s second in northwest Arkansas.
"We’ve been actively seeking locations in northwest Arkansas for several months now," Jim Lynch, the Newk’s franchisee, said. "With its close proximity to the Pinnacle Hills Promenade, residential neighborhoods and the professional offices both on site and nearby, Country Club Plaza was a natural fit for Newk’s fast-casual concept and wide variety of menu items."
Country Club Plaza consists of a retail center and neighboring three-story, 90,000-SF office building on the Pauline Whitaker traffic circle near Pinnacle Country Club. Office space at the facility is expected to be complete by the 2nd quarter of 2016 and the retail center is scheduled to be open along with it.
Alan Cole, principal at Colliers International of Arkansas, represented Newk’s and is the leasing agent for Country Club Plaza.
"We’re delighted to welcome Newk’s as a tenant at Country Club Plaza," Cole said. "Our adjoining office building tenant roster continues to expand and Newk’s will be a great convenience for everyone working, shopping and living nearby. We’re thrilled to have them on board."
