Remember when we told you three months ago about Waldo’s Chicken & Beer setting up shop in North Little Rock?
The recent $1.1 million purchase of the former Carino’s location at 4221 Warden Road sets the stage for the first Waldo’s in Arkansas to open later this year.
Waldos Central AR Real Estate LLC, led by Jim Keet, bought the property from McCain Mall Co. Ltd., an affiliate of Simon Property Group of Indianapolis.
The 6,080-SF building will be razed to create a blank slate for construction of a prototype Waldo’s forecast to open in the third quarter of this year. The intention is to unveil a restaurant design that will be replicated with future Waldo’s.
