A Montana company plans to open a Ciao Mambo restaurant in the ground level corner of the Lincoln Plaza building, a Spokane development firm announced Monday.
The new restaurant, part of the Glacier Restaurant Group based in Whitefish, Mont., will open in January. It’s expected to hire 75 workers, a company spokesman said.
Goodale & Barbieri Co. President Tom Barbieri said his group spent roughly two years finding the right lessee to take over the 4,000-square-foot corner spot of the nine-level building, at the corner of Riverside and Lincoln in downtown Spokane.
The Italian restaurant and lounge will use about 1,200-square feet in the outdoor plaza, Barbieri added.
Barbieri said the challenge was locating a firm with the needed management experience and financial stability to run a restaurant in that building.
“We either had people with enough capitalization but no experience running restaurants. Or people with experience who weren’t capitalized,” he said.
Cory Barbieri handled the transaction.
Ciao Mambo has several restaurants in Montana and one, according to its website, in Hayden.
