Qdoba finds space in the Kahler

Qdoba finds space in the Kahler

A nationwide burrito chain is rolling into downtown Rochester.

Minnesota-based franchisee CMP Foods has filed building permits with the city to build a Qdoba Mexican Restaurant in the first floor of the Kahler Grand Hotel at 20 Second Avenue Southwest — next to the Starbucks.

This will be Qdoba’s first location in Rochester. The restaurant chain competes in the same “fast casual” space as Chipotle and Panchero’s, both of which already operate in town. An opening date has not been set.

H/t to Jeff Kiger at the P-B for being the first one on this
