Zippy’s Restaurants plans to open its first Las Vegas location at Badura Avenue and Montessouri Street in the southwest area of the city in the second half of 2020.

The company announced last year it would enter the Las Vegas market, but only recently released details on its website.

A land purchase from Laurich Properties will allow development of a 7,000-square-foot restaurant, takeout service and bakery as well as a 12,000-square-foot central kitchen/bakery in anticipation of further expansion in Las Vegas.

No sales price was disclosed.

“The location in southwest Las Vegas is ideal for Zippy’s Restaurants,” CEO Jason Higa stated on the company website. “This area is burgeoning with residential housing. In addition, the location near the 215 Beltway will provide an efficient transportation hub for our central production facility to support the additional Zippy’s stores to open in other parts of Las Vegas.”

The iconic Hawaii restaurant chain was founded by Francis and Charles Higa. They opened their first restaurant on King Street in 1966. The company now operates 22 restaurants on Oahu and one each on Maui and Hawaii Island.
