Changes are coming in the near future for Kirkwood Mall. The mall's management company, CBL Properties, announced its plans today. The construction on three new restaurants - Blaze Pizza, Five Guys, and Chick-fil-A - will begin this spring.

In this morning's announcement, Chief Executive Office of CBL Properties Steven Lebovitz said, "We are thrilled to bring these in-demand dining options to the Bismarck community. Kirkwood Mall holds the dominant position in the market, offering a number of exclusive tenants including Carter’s|OshKosh B’gosh, Sephora, H&M, and Target. The addition of Blaze Pizza, Five Guys, and Chick-fil-A will complement the property’s existing mix and further solidify Kirkwood’s strength in the market."

Five Guys and Blaze Pizza will be built in the former Herberger’s parking lot facing South 3rd Street, adjacent to SCHEELS. Chick-fil-A will be located on the north side of the former Herberger’s parking lot facing South 3rd Street near I. Keating Furniture.

Construction on this project will begin this spring. More detailed information and grand opening details will be shared as plans are finalized.
