Third Carl's Jr. planned for Idaho Falls

Good news for everyone who loves juicy burgers: Carl's Jr. No. 3 is planned for Idaho Falls.
Carl's Jr. will be building a third restaurant in Idaho Falls, at the corner of West Broadway and Utah Avenue.

The city of Idaho Falls Engineering Department received a site plan Thursday for the project, showing details for a 3,177-square-foot restaurant and surrounding landscaping and parking. City departments will review the plans for compliance with city regulations. After that, the company will submit a plat for final approval.

Ever since the first two Carl's Jr. restaurants were built in Idaho Falls, in 2011 and 2012, there have been rumblings that a third was being planned on the site where Arctic Circle was.

Kelly Grieve, spokeswoman for CKE Restaurants, said the company doesn't have a date set for the opening. It is more than three months away, however, because that's how far their calendar looks forward, she said. CKE has 14 restaurants in Idaho.
