A new tenant will fill the former Puccini’s Smiling Teeth space at Shelbyville Road Plaza in St. Matthews.
Qdoba Mexican Grill Inc. has signed an agreement to lease the 3,157-square-foot store in the shopping center, according to Tommy Edwards, leasing agent for Hagan Properties Inc., which owns the center.
Hagan Properties received numerous offers on the space, Edwards said, but settled on Qdoba because of the Colorado-based company’s positive reputation in Louisville. “They are a great (quick-service restaurant) company,” he said. “They have impeccable credit.”
Right now, it looks like the Qdoba will open in late spring or early summer, Edwards said. He declined to say whether Hagan Properties would put any money toward renovations.
Media representatives with Qdoba could not immediately be reached for comment.
Puccini’s Smiling Teeth is a Indianapolis-based Italian restaurant chain. It closed its only Louisville location last summer.
Other restaurants at Shelbyville Road Plaza include Blaze Fast-Fire’s Pizza, Penn Station East Coast Subs, Home Run Burgers & Fries, Jason’s Deli and Buffalo Wild Wings.
