Is The Griddle coming to McCall? An update

In late 2016, Boise Weekly reported The Griddle had won a fight with McCall City Council to relax rules on chain restaurants.

Now – more than a year-and-a-half later, The Griddle still isn’t serving up breakfast in the mountain town.

“Regarding our potential location in McCall, we have been looking to open a Griddle location in the McCall area for quite some time,” The Griddle General Manager Ashley Ferguson said. “When we are looking to open in a new location, there are many factors that we consider.  While we do hope to eventually open in McCall, all of those pieces are not yet in place.”

Ferguson said a possible location hasn’t yet been solidified, and they do not have an estimate on when a restaurant could open in McCall.

“We love the community of McCall and hope to open a location there when the time is right and the pieces have fallen into place,” she said. “As with most of our other expansions, if it is right for us as a company, the time and the location will work itself out.”
