Chicago’s iconic restaurant chain Portillo’s is headed to North Texas. The Italian beef sandwich company is going to begin their Texas expansion with a brick-and-mortar location at Grandscape in The Colony. Dick Portillo’s restaurant started in 1963 as a Chicago-style hot dog stand. And for 42 years, it was mostly a Chicago thing, until the company ventured outside of Illinois at then end of 2005. Since then Portillo’s Restaurants are in nine states and soon to be ten.

Alpine Sheet Metal Systems and Alpine Roofing & Construction has been involved in with the Grandscape location since its inception. Alpine is likely to be involved in all four of Portillo’s Texas locations going into: Allen, Arlington, and Fort Worth. The new flagship restaurant completion is set for January 1, 2023 and will be located at: 4560 Destination Dr, The Colony, TX 75056.
