Rendering of Portillo’s forthcoming Avon concept

(PRESS RELEASE)— Portillo’s, the fast casual concept known for its menu of Chicago-style favorites, proudly announces its newest location at 10444 E. US Hwy. 36 in Avon, IN. The Avon location follows locations in Merrillville, Fishers, and Mishawaka, with an Indianapolis restaurant slated to open later this summer.

“Though Portillo’s originated in Illinois, we have seen such a phenomenal welcome from our Indiana neighbors,” says CEO Keith Kinsey. “Our location in Avon is situated in a strong retail area with a great mix of business and residential audiences. We look forward to joining this vibrant local community.”

Guests to the new Avon location can enjoy all of Portillo’s classic menu items, including Chicago-Style Hot DogsItalian Beef Sandwiches, char-grilled burgers, fresh salads, and Portillo’s famous Chocolate Cake.
