GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The now-former Grizzly's Grill N' Saloon will be filled by two new restaurants and retail space.

The space near the Columbia Mall in south Grand Forks will be occupied by Noodles & Company and an Erbert & Gerbert's Sandwich Shop, which will feature a drive-through window.

An operating partner told the Grand Forks Herald that the company Border States Management closed on the property on Monday. Grizzly's had its last day of business on Sunday.

The partner says construction will begin in early January to remodel the space and says that some space will be added onto the building.

More space is available for retail space that will likely be used for two other tenants.

"It’s the main retail trade area in the city,” he told the Herald. “I think you want to locate by your competitors. We looked for quite a while and this space became available, and it makes more sense for us to locate there than anywhere else in town.”

Erbert & Gerbert’s offers submarine sandwiches, soups, potato chips, pickles, cookies and soft drinks. The franchise was founded in 1987 in Eau Claire, Wis., and now has about 50 locations across the country.

Noodles & Company is a “fast casual” restaurant that offers Asian, Mediterranean and American dishes, including noodles, pastas, salads, soups and sandwiches. The company, founded in 1995, is headquartered in Broomfield, Colo., and now has more than 260 restaurants in 20 states.
