Business briefs: New restaurant, winter gear sale and networking event coming to Summit County
October 3, 2017
The storefront previously occupied by the Smiling Moose at 842 Summit Blvd. in Frisco is being leased out to a new Argentinian restaurant, according to a property manager.
The new restaurant, Argentos Empanadas & More, will serve empanadas, a stuffed bread or pastry that's baked or fried and originally from Latin America and Spain, along with other food from Argentina.
The name "empanada" comes from the Spanish verb "empanar," meaning to wrap or coat in bread, and the empanadas are going to be made by Maria Empanada in Denver, according to Summit Place asset manager Brad Kornfeld, who added there's already a strong following for them here in Summit County.
The suite is 1,236 square feet, and owners hope to have the restaurant open in time for ski season, Kornfeld said.
