Fort Wayne Portillo’s location still hiring, gives ABC21 opening date

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – Portillo’s soon-to-be Fort Wayne location opened its doors Tuesday for an inside look at the progress at Glenbrook Square.

Portillo’s is a Chicago-style restaurant that specializes in hot dogs, Italian beef and burgers.

Construction started about 10 weeks ago, and training for all of the new crew members starts Nov. 4.

A little more than a month later? Portillo’s plans to open its doors to the hungry public on Dec. 5.

If you just can’t wait to try an Italian beef dog, you can find the restaurant’s food truck dubbed The Beef Bus parked outside the Ramada Inn.
