Mi Rancho in Evans to move into new building

Mi Rancho’s Evans restaurant will move in early 2012, according to co-owner Teo Estrada.


Estrada said the restaurant in Eagle Point Plaza will relocate to a new building in the Publix shopping center on Washington Road at Riverwood Plantation.

The new building, he said, will be more than 1,000 square feet larger than the current one.

“We’re trying to update, and just make us look better,” he said.

Estrada said he prefers to build his restaurants from scratch rather than work out of existing spaces, but his Aiken restaurant is the only other space he has built.

The expansion is scheduled to be completed in time for
a January move-in date, and
Es­trada said he expects to hire
10 employees.

“It depends on how things go, of course,” he said. “You never know till you start, really.”

Because the Evans Mi Rancho is moving, the Eagle Point Plaza restaurant equipment is up for sale.

Estrada said he is asking $75,000 to take over the lease and for the equipment and furniture.

“That way, we will start with all-new equipment,” he said.
