A well known restaurant appears to be taking over Torchy’s Tacos space

Torchy's Tacos

The Torchy’s Tacos building at 2901 N. Maize Road has sat empty for a year and a half ever since the taco restaurant closed in 2022.

It’s prime real estate sitting near the southwest corner of 29th and Maize. There’s been a major influx of new and announced restaurants coming to north Maize Road, so it was only a matter of time before someone came in and took over the Torchy’s Tacos building.

Panera Bread appears to be moving in as a permit was filed for them to take over the building at 2901 N. Maize Road.

It’s an interesting move if that’s the case as a Panera Bread is already located at 2441 N. Maize Road, meaning this will likely be a move instead of an additional location.

But the move would make sense as there would be better street visibility with a standalone building and a drive-thru which would be a huge bonus.

Stay tuned for more as information becomes available.
