WILMINGTON, MA — Casa Blanca Mexican Restaurant is coming to Wilmington.
The popular Mexican restaurant will fill the vacancy at the former Chili’s site at 207 Main Street, inside the Wilmington Crossing plaza.
An opening date for the restaurant has not yet been publicly announced, but Casa Blanca officials will be in front of the Wilmington Board of Selectmen at their Monday, July 9 meeting to seek an alcohol license for the establishment.
Casa Blanca is a local chain with five locations — Andover, Billerica, North Andover, Haverhill, and Methuen.
The restaurant, which opened its first location in 2006, has a menu full of “amazing authentic Mexican dishes from family recipes that’s prepared fresh daily,” touting itself as featuring “the best Mexican Food and margaritas in the Merrimack Valley.”
The building’s predecessor — Chili’s — closed in early August 2017 after seven years in operation. The Chili’s closure was part of a string of high-profile vacancies on Main Street. The Town recently commissioned a market analysis study of this portion of the Route 38 corridor, from Richmond Street to Clark Street. The information gathered from the study will be used to help attract new businesses to town and fill existing vacancies.
