Filberto’s Goodyear

Filberto’s is coming soon to Goodyear. 

It would be unfair for Business Briefcase (BB) to simply state, “There’s a new Filberto’s Mexican restaurant opening in Goodyear!”

This would rob readers of all that goes into a Business Briefcase blurb (BBB).

Here’s how it works: 

A reader emails, “Just curious if you all know what they are building by the Target on Cotton Lane?” 

BB replies: “Is this a big construction project? If so, Andersen Corporation.” According to Goodyear Economic Development, this is a big deal: “The company plans to invest more than $105 million in a 500,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility and create more than 415 jobs during the first phase of this expansion.” Andersen is scheduled to open in the next few months, on Cotton Lane and MC 85. 

Curious reader responds, “It looks more like a fast-food restaurant. It’s between Carl’s Jr. and Bank of America.”

BB reaches out to Goodyear Economic Development.

Angela Woods promptly responds, “it is Filberto’s Canyon Trails.” 

 No tentative opening date yet, but it was only a matter of time for Filberto’s to land south of the I-10. There are 20 Filberto’s around the Valley, including one on Indian School Road and North 107th Avenue in Avondale.
