MISHAWAKA, Ind. - The Mishawaka building that used to house Hooters on Day Road will now house Potbelly Sandwich Works.

Potbelly is a Chicago based sandwich, soup, and shake chain that recently went public.

Plans call for the restaurant to open in January or February of next year.

Plans also call for a non-food based retailer to occupy a portion of the building, perhaps a furniture or mattress store.

Unless they offer a decent sandwich w/ side and drink for $5 or less they are not going to make it. Doesn't have to be deluxe. Quick service would be nice.

I'm surprised they aren't closer to Notre Dame...

If you wait long enough, sometimes history repeats itself. We’ve seen it happen with fashion trends and in pop culture.
And now, Hooters is planning a comeback in Mishawaka.
The international restaurant chain famous for its owl logo and form-fitting waitress uniforms is scheduled to reopen in October.
Mark Whittle, senior vice president of global development, confirmed the news on Tuesday.
“The building will feature the new image of Hooters with contemporary interior and exterior design elements featuring sleek finishes, modernized furniture, more comfortable seating as well as an enhanced selection of food and alcohol,” Whittle said in an emailed statement.
Longtime local diners might remember the Hooters girls serving the restaurant’s signature chicken wings and beer from 2003 to 2011 in a free-standing building on Day Road, across from Kohl’s-anchored Princess City Plaza.
Hooters is expected to reopen this fall in the same building constructed specifically for the restaurant. This time around, though, Hooters will be owned by Atlanta-based Hooters of America as opposed to a franchise group.
“In my time with the city, I’ve never seen this happen,” Mishawaka City Planner Ken Prince says about a restaurant or retailer opening, closing and then reopening at a single location.
Hooters experienced early financial success on the city’s north side near the growing number of casual-dining restaurants. But in 2006, franchise owner RMD Corp. of Louisville, Ky. saw sales weakening and it later blamed the closing on the recession.
Last summer, it appeared the former Hooters building would be redeveloped for a Potbelly Sandwich Shop. The city approved rezoning the property for an Illinois developer who wanted to bring the drive-thru restaurant and a retailer to the site.
But the project never happened and the 4,660-square-foot building remained vacant. Potbelly is now part of a planned new multi-tenant building on North Main Street, east of Meijer.
“Hooters takes many factors into consideration for site selection of new locations,” Whittle says about the restaurant’s return to Mishawaka. “And when all factors align, (we) will certainly open in a location where a previous Hooters stood.”
Preliminary architectural plans have been submitted to the city by Chipman Design Architecture of Des Plaines, Ill., and Hooters has applied for a beer, wine and liquor license with the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission.
“They are looking to freshen the look of the building,” Prince says about the exterior improvements that have been proposed. No major structural changes are indicated on plans.
Hooters will be looking to hire between 35 and 45 employees.

Have you heard
This is as official as it gets. Yats Cajun Creole restaurant signage has been posted at Eddy Street Commons in South Bend. The owners also have filed construction-design plans with the state so they can start remodeling the former General Nutrition Center space. Yats, which is expected to open in August, is based in Indianapolis and features jambalaya, gumbo, red beans over rice, and étoufée, a Cajun stew. Customers order from a chalkboard menu and only nine items appear on the daily menu. Yats restaurants usually seat about 40 diners and cater to carryout customers.
