Pancheros Adds A 3rd Bismarck Location
The Kirkwood Mall continues to add new tenants. The Kirkwood Mall Management is excited about their latest tenant to open this week Pancheros. According to a press release we obtained from the mall, Kirkwood Mall is adding four new tenants to their property this week.
They include Thrifty White Pharmacy, Daily Thread, Asian Health Bodywork Spa, and Pancheros. That's a total of 9,000 square feet of new retail for Kirkwood Mall.
Pancheros Mexican Grill opened for business today on Tuesday, June 14th. This is the 3rd Pancheros location in Bismarck with an offering of fast-casual Tex Mex dining including burritos, quesadillas, tacos, chips and queso, and more. Pancheros is located in the building next to Thrifty White Pharmacy in the west parking lot. The general consensus among my co-workers is how good their white cheese sauce is at Pancheros.
Speaking of the exploding amount of businesses now located in the Kirkwood Mall parking lot, including Chick-fil-A, Blaze Pizza, Thrifty White Drug, 5 Guys, and now Pancheros. The reason it is now possible is that Mayor Steve Bakken tasked the Planning Department of the city to revise the off-street parking requirements. This allowed for some variation to the requirements that Kirkwood Mall was already under based on square footage, and the number of parking spaces required.
This has turned into a "win-win for the city of Bismarck and Kirkwood Mall itself," said Mayor Steve Bakken in a recent interview with me. He would like to see more strip malls throughout the city of Bismarck.
