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.
