Rockford Portillo's grand opening breaks sales record
Wednesday, June 10, 2015 5:38 PM EDT
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
The numbers are in and Portillo's said it had the most successful opening day for a new restaurant in its 52 year history.
The company bases it on sales.
A spokesman said they had nearly 5,000 orders placed from open to close in Rockford Tuesday.
The previous record was held by the Scottsdale, Arizona, Portillo's restaurant which opened in 2013.
"The excitement we have felt from the Rockford community has been incredible," said Nick Scarpino, the Director of Marketing for the company.
Portillo's hired more than 200 full and part time workers to run the new Rockford location.
It is expected to generate six figure sales tax revenues for the City of Rockford.
