California Tortilla co-founder Pam Felix is crossing her fingers that the flagship store of the fast-growing Mexican chain will be ready to open tomorrow (Wednesday.)
The move across the street to a bigger location at 4871 Cordell Ave. is almost complete. On Tuesday, Felix and co-founder Alan Cohen were waiting for a Montgomery County Health Department official to finish inspections as they and their crew feverishly worked on some final touches.
The old location (4862 Cordell Ave.) has been empty for about a week as workers moved equipment.
The outdoor seating area, which Felix said might extend along the Norfolk Avenue side of the restaurant, will accomodate as many as 100 people.
The “Grand Opening” celebration is slated for Nov. 9 Tuesday, Oct. 9, said California Tortilla Vice President of Marketing Stacey Kane.
