Portillo announces new opening date for the Orlando location


Fast-casual chain Portillo’s has announced that it will host the opening of its newest restaurant at The Village on O-Town West in Orlando, Florida on June 15, 2021.

Following an earlier postponement, a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on this new date at 10 a.m., followed by a public opening at 10:30 a.m.

Portillo’s is hiring in anticipation of this new opening date, with a variety of openings in hourly and shift supervisor positions. Interested parties can find out more at

Once opened, diners can enjoy signature menu items like Chicago-style hot dogs, famous Italian beef sandwiches, grilled burgers, and Portillo’s famous chocolate cake. The 7,800 square meter restaurant has double lanes and two large covered outdoor terraces. The interior of the restaurant is designed in a diner style. A ceiling installation with an electric guitar pays homage to rock’n’roll.

As part of the launch of this new location, Portillo’s designed a limited edition t-shirt. Guests can sign up for the chain’s Birthday Club to receive one of these shirts on opening day while supplies last. Those who register will also receive a piece of Portillo’s homemade chocolate cake on their birthday.
