MASON CITY — Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches and Panchero’s Mexican Grill are planning to open restaurants in Mason City.
City officials have approved a site plan and issued a building permit for a two-tenant building for them on the same lot as the building where Amish Heirloom’s furniture, Maggies Sewing Center, PSI Printing and Edward D Jones are located, according to City Planner Tricia Sandahl.
Mike Momberg is listed as the contractor.
The Globe Gazette first reported in June that Jimmy John’s would open a restaurant in Mason City.
A spokeswoman for Jimmy John’s, headquartered in Champaign, Ill., confirmed there will be a restaurant in Mason City but said it was too early to speculate on when it will open.
Panchero’s is a national chain headquartered in Coralville. No information was immediately available on a construction schedule or when it would open.
