The Utah–based restaurant chain Kneaders Bakery & Café is expanding in Maricopa County and plans to build on the northwest corner of Southern Avenue and Signal Butte Road in east Mesa.
The restaurant, including a drive-through, will be at 1130 S. Signal Butte Road facing Southern Avenue and cover just over 4KSF. Construction is expected to begin in May as soon as permits are issued, and the restaurant is expected to open in September.
The restaurant, which touts its freshly baked goods, sells sandwiches, soups, salads and pastries, is one of five planned in metro Phoenix. There are six existing Kneaders restaurants in the Valley; nationwide, existing restaurants total 32.
