Hardee's Targets Woodbury for Possible Restaurant

The nationwide burger chain highlighted a spot in Woodbury as a possible location for a new Hardee's restaurant, according to a City Pages post.

When Hardee's announced plans earlier this month to build as many as 59 new locations around the Twin Cities in the next five years, there was still a lot of mystery over where those restaurants would be built.

That question appears to have been answered, as City Pages secured a map of planned locations for the burger joints.

One of the spots looks to be near the intersection of Interstate 494 and Valley Creeek Road in Woodbury, according to the map on the City Pages website.

Jim Sullivan, head of franchise development with CKE Restaurants, told City Pages the tentative locations—59 in total—all have high traffic counts, populations in the 40,000 range, good site visibility and drive-thru access.

Michael Sawyer, CKE's market planning manager, told the paper that the locations aren't guaranteed to eventually house Hardee's restaurants, but said the preliminary sites will serve as "reference points."

Kris, what happened to that McDonalds that was supposed to be built by the new Super Target?

I've talked to the developer a few times, actually, he wasn't overly forthcoming about things. I called him twice, too, about the overall plans. But I'm pretty sure fine Scottish dining is still on the horizon there.

Any idea what is going in on the SE corner of 19 and Hudson (City Walk)?

Not sure Cory, I have seen some work going on over there of late. I'll check it out.
