Kidd Valley recently announced it will be opening their seventh location in Washington this summer. The newest location will join the restaurant ranks at Seattle’s iconic Pier 54, such as Ivar’s Acres of Clams and Ivar’s Fish Bar.
“The Seattle waterfront will be a fantastic location for the latest Kidd Valley as it sees about 5.5 million visitors a year from both local residents and tourists,” said Carl Taylor, director of operations for Kidd Valley. “This marquee location allows us to bring the fast-casual, comfortable vibe of Kidd Valley to the waterfront. We’re thrilled to showcase our award-winning menu items like fresh, made-to-order burgers, handmade sides and signature milkshakes in a historic, architecturally stunning space.”
The new location will boast 2,866 square feet of indoor seating for 82 guests, including comfortable booths, retro-style tables and chairs, and outdoor seating for 24. In addition, the location boasts architectural components from the original 1900 building such as exposed beams and retained concrete flooring. The unique ambiance also includes a custom potato hopper, vintage Kidd Valley decor and more.
The Kidd Valley Pier 54 location will employ approximately 45 local staffers and feature signature menu items including a full range of fresh, never frozen burgers, sandwiches, world famous garlic fries, fresh-cut, hand-made fries, fresh hand-breaded chicken strips and chicken sandwiches, local and regional wines, beers and cider, and new menu items to be announced.
Since opening its first location in 1975, Kidd Valley continues to utilize the freshest ingredients possible, serving more than 800,000 burgers and sandwiches, 300,000 hand-made shakes and nearly half a million orders of fries, handmade onion rings and fried mushrooms each year.
