A Denver restaurant chain named for the pickles that come on every plate wants to open 10 locations in central Indiana. Spicy PickleThe 31-restaurant chain plans to begin construction on its first location soon, along 116th Street in Fishers Town Commons. The chain also has signed a letter of intent to take space in the expansion of Castleton Square Mall, across from Borders, said John Van Engelen, one of two local franchise owners. They're also planning locations downtown, at the airport and anywhere else with a strong lunch business. The restaurants feature gourmet paninis, subs, salads and soups.

  • is it me we lose some chains but yet we pick up more chains this is the 2nd chain this week to anounce expanding into indy hopefully jack in the box is next
  • sounds good, but another chain. sigh....
  • I have been to one of these in Denver. It is a chain but it also has great food!
  • More chains! I'm sick of chains. Shop local!
  • Great, fresh food. Just recently dined in the Chicago (Lincoln Park) location and can't wait for them to open in Indy. They will be a great addition to the marketplace and you will enjoy it too!
  • regardless of how good their food is...boo to more chains!! Its really hard to
    take out of town friends and family to good restaurants that showcase Indianapolis when all they see is the same crappy chains they have around their house.
  • @Matthew: What about the Mass Ave & Fountain Sq. area? Scholars, Aseops, Agio, Element, Yats, MacNivens just to name a few; it isn't that hard to find non-chain restaurants here. All you have to do is look.
  • WOWWWWW I just checked out the web site i think the food sounds great, better than a greasy burger chain. Looking forward to checking it out.
  • Menu looks great! While more chains may upset some chains tend to have more to offer the community with donations to charities and things like that. I look forward to new restaurants no matter what they are.

  1. By the way, the right to work law is intended to prevent forced union membership, not as a way to keep workers in bondage as you make it sound, Italiano. If union leadership would spend all of their funding on the workers, who they are supposed to be representing, instead of trying to buy political favor and living lavish lifestyles as a result of the forced membership, this law would never had been necessary.

  2. Unions once served a noble purpose before greed and apathy took over. Now most unions are just as bad or even worse than the ills they sought to correct. I don't believe I have seen a positive comment posted by you. If you don't like the way things are done here, why do you live here? It would seem a more liberal environment like New York or California would suit you better?

  3. just to clear it up... Straight No Chaser is an a capella group that formed at IU. They've toured nationally typically doing a capella arangements of everything from Old Songbook Standards to current hits on the radio.

  4. This surprises you? Mayor Marine pulled the same crap whenhe levered the assets of the water co up by half a billion $$$ then he created his GRAFTER PROGRAM called REBUILDINDY. That program did not do anything for the Ratepayors Water Infrastructure Assets except encumber them and FORCE invitable higher water and sewer rates on Ratepayors to cover debt coverage on the dough he stole FROM THE PUBLIC TRUST. The guy is morally bankrupt to the average taxpayer and Ratepayor.

  5. There is no developer on the planet that isn't aware of what their subcontractors are doing (or not doing). They hire construction superintendents. They have architects and engineers on site to observe construction progress. If your subcontractor wasn't doing their job, you fire them and find someone who will. If people wonder why more condos aren't being built, developers like Kosene & Kosene are the reason. I am glad the residents were on the winning end after a long battle.
