Ankeny's first Perkins Restaurant & Bakery at 714 S.W. Oralabor Road will open Wednesday July 17.
It's the 22nd Perkins in Iowa.
Jim Rahfaldt, of CyHawk Hospitality who has opened six Perkins in as many years, said in a prepared statement that “Ankeny is one of the fastest growing communities in the Midwest. Businesses and residential areas are expanding, there’s a strong commitment to and investment in the school system, and there are many families in the local area. Perkins will round out the dining scene in the community and seems to be a natural fit.”
The new Ankeny Perkins is near Olive Garden.
The 5,400 square foot restaurant will feature two separate dining areas and Perkins “legendary” menu including the option to order breakfast any time of day.
Kim Prowant, a long time Ankeny resident, has been hired to oversee the new restaurant's opening.
