TWIN FALLS — The owners of Burger King restaurants around the Magic Valley say they plan to break ground this year on two restaurants and a coffee shop south of Walmart on Cheney Drive West.
HB Properties, based out of Salt Lake City, intends to construct three buildings for a Kneaders Bakery & Café, a second Twin Falls Burger King and a Beans and Brews Coffee House this fall.
“We’re pretty darn excited about it,” Vice President Gary Moore said.
Kneaders Bakery is a regional chain with two restaurants in Idaho. It serves homemade breads, sandwiches, soups and salads, pastries and pies. It also has a full breakfast menu.
“It’s just a great concept,” Moore said.
Beans and Brews Coffee House opened a shop in Jerome last year and has four stores in Idaho.
HB Properties has operated Burger King restaurants in the Magic Valley for more than 20 years, Moore said. His partner, Dave Williams, grew up in Mini-Cassia.
“We love Twin Falls,” Moore said. “We love doing business here.”
Another two buildings are planned to go in next year, but announcements for those tenants are pending. Moore said the 7,000 to 8,000 square-foot buildings will include a mix of retail and restaurants.
“There’s been a lot of interest on this piece of property,” he said.
The developers have requested special use permits for all five buildings to have drive-thru windows and extended hours of operation. The drive-throughs would empty toward the center of the property, Moore said, and the buildings would face inward. A public hearing is scheduled with the Planning and Zoning Commission Sept. 12.
