Petition to City Council: Let Portillo's Bring Us the Hot Dogs We Deserve
On April 3, the Maple Grove City Council voted in a 3-2 decision to not allow construction of a Portillo's restaurant in Maple Grove, Minnesota. The reasoning of the three members voting against it is that they were skeptical that the restuarant would be a "destination" that would drive more foot traffic to the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes, which is the proposed location of the Portillo's restaurant and a shopping area that has been struggling financially in recent years.
Portillo's is a great restaurant serving great tasting quality food. I myself always make it a priority to visit whenever I am traveling to an area with a Portillo's location nearby. I believe people will come to Portillo's and stay for the shopping nearby, especially in the nicer weather months of summer and early fall.
The City Council is meeting again on April 17 to vote on a denial order to make the decision final. I have created this petition as a way to show support for a Portillo's restaurant as a future destination for the people of Maple Grove and surrounding cities.
