New local chicken restaurant to open in old Wendy’s

Fiesta Chicken plans to open in the former Wendy’s location at 1450 S. Orchard in Boise.

Signage went up on the building last week, and a permit to upgrade the kitchen has been filed with the City of Boise.

This will be a second outlet for the Fiesta Chicken Mexican restaurant, joining a location on Ustick Rd. that opened in 2013.

It features a variety of salads, burritos, chicken platters, nachos and more.

Fiesta Chicken replaces one of the state’s first Wendy’s restaurants, which closed last year after the franchisee opened other locations nearby.
