URBANDALE, Iowa — Hy-Vee plans to open its first Market Fresh Grille — a full-service, sit-down restaurant — inside a store here that it plans to open next month.
The West Des Moines, Iowa-based company said the store, at 93,000 square feet, would be its largest and will also include a sushi bar with seating, a coffee-shop/lounge area, a gelato station, a fruit and juice bar, an oatmeal bar, a pizza oven and a variety of store-made grab-and-go prepared foods.
In addition, it will have an expanded housewares section with a cooking demo area, a large wine and spirits section, and what the company described as “the largest selection of bulk foods in central Iowa.”
The Market Fresh Grille will be a “casual dining spot that converts to a full-service restaurant starting at 4 p.m.,” the company said in a statement.
A current Hy-Vee next to the new location is scheduled to close July 15, with the new store to open on Aug. 14.
