Sacramento restaurateur Eric Schnetz plans to open a fourth local Chicago Fire restaurant at the Palladio at Broadstone shopping complex in Folsom.
Schnetz said today that he hopes to open the 7,200-square-foot outlet by November. It will be built in existing retail space near the entrance to the Palladio 16 Cinemas along East Bidwell Street.
Seating around 300 and employing 80 to 100, it will be the largest Chicago Fire restaurant, which serves Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas, thin-crust pizzas and other items.
Current Chicago Fire restaurants are at 614 Sutter St., in Folsom (the first, opened in 2003), 2416 J St., in Sacramento and 500 N. Sunrise Ave., in Roseville. Those outlets employ about 180.
