Longtime Valley restaurant operator, Loco Patrõn, has leased the former Salty Senorita building on Northsight Boulevard for a new Loco Patrõn Mexican Brewery. The area is bustling with new restaurants, retailers and multifamily development. A luxury 297-unit apartment building is being constructed directly behind the Loco North building, along with the popular breakfast and weekend brunch restaurant, Butters, which recently opened its doors across the way. Existing national tenants in the immediate area include Costco, Walmart Supercenter, Sam’s Club, Home Depot, and more.
Owners Ryan Vertuca, Josh Levine and Jeremy Jazwinski are looking forward to the new expansion. “We are very excited to bring a Mexican Brewery to North Scottsdale Airpark. We have been looking for the right location for the past three years to deliver our newest concept, and believe we have found a great building and neighborhood,” Vertuca said. “Renovations are underway. First on the list is to almost double the size of the current patio. The new patio will have a “backyard feel” to it,” continued Vertuca.
Judi Butterworth, Senior Vice President of ORION Investment Real Estate, facilitated the lease. Butterworth noted, “Loco Patrõn has an excellent reputation for great food and fun. They are joining a stellar list of popular nearby restaurants, like O.S.H.O and Four Peaks Brewery.”
The new location is anticipated to open in January of 2017.
