Manchester Mall Food Pad – Ribbon Cutting

The Fresno Chamber of Commerce held an exciting ribbon cutting for completion of Phase one of the Manchester Center Remodel. Held June 14th,  to celebrate completion of Phase 1, also known as The Pad. The pad is where you will find Habit Burger & Chipotle.  Coming soon will be Rita’s Italian Ice.  In fact this Habit Burger location is the only one with a drive through! General Manager Mo Bagunu talked about when the idea started 5 yrs ago, it was hard for people to believe it would happen. After all it is hard to open a business South of Shaw.  Mo thanked & introduced Ben Nazarian with Omninet Capital for all their assistance. Ben said Phase 2 will begin next month and should be completed in early 2018. This Phase will be the exterior of the Blackstone side, and also the “Market Place” inside. The Market Place will consist of the Best Food & wide variety Fresno has to offer.  Ben thanked Mayor Brand and the City for all their help. Mayor Brand was also in attendance along with Representatives from Patterson, Vidak, and Berryhill office.
