On the heels of celebrating their 20th anniversary in Arizona, Scottsdale-based Z’Tejas Southwestern Grill is announcing the addition of their fifth location in central Phoenix located at 16th street and Bethany Home Road. Construction will begin on July 2. The expansion marks their belief in Phoenix as a viable market for growth. This Z’Tejas location will be one of the first “ground-up” construction projects in that neighborhood in a long time, according to Steven Micheletti, CEO & President of Z’Tejas.
“We are thrilled to move forward with our fifth location,” says Micheletti. “After over a year of planning, Z’Tejas is finally able to move ahead with our building plans which will make for a great addition to this Phoenix neighborhood.”
The new location will feature small dining rooms for an intimate feel and a greenhouse with a retractable roof. The restaurant will seat roughly 290 guests, including an outdoor patio.
The first Arizona Z’Tejas restaurant opened in December 1991 at Scottsdale Fashion Square and continues to thrive in the community. The concept then continued to grow with three other locations in Shea & Tatum in Phoenix (1996) Tempe (2000) and Chandler in (2001).
Z’Tejas is at the forefront of unique Southwestern fare with seasonal menu items and specialty cocktails, including their award-winning Chambord margarita. Visit www.ztejas.com for more information and follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ztejassouthwesterngrill and Twitter @ZTejas.
