Popular Chicago restaurant coming to Peoria

PEORIA - The beloved restaurant Portillo’s may be coming to Peoria within the next year. According to a recent posting from INDEED, Portillo’s will be opening its doors in Peoria in 2018.

This popular chain is known for their Chicago style hot dogs, and Italian beef. CEO Keith Kinsey has said “It’s the Midwest, They love our types of food. They understand our type of food, they understand what a great Italian beef is, they understand what a Chicago dog is.” With almost 50 locations, this restaurant has had a die-hard following since it first opened in 1963.

No word yet on where or when construction will begin, but job applications are available for all levels of restaurant management.

Peoria would be Portillo’s 48th location, and its third store to open in Central Illinois. The Normal location is set to open August 15th at 10:30 a.m.
