Chow times delayed.
Instead of opening a Little Rock restaurant in July as originally planned, Memphis restaurateur King Chow now hopes just to see facility construction start that month at his 1.62-acre plot at 102 S. Rodney Parham Road.
His Arkansas contractor, which he would not identify, filed for bankruptcy last fall, he said, setting him back by almost a year.
So now Roger Knight Construction of Salt Lake City, the same contractor that is building Chow an eatery in Utah, is taking on the 14,000-SF Little Rock project.
Chow told Whispers last July that he wanted to open two restaurants in Little Rock, but he said that his plans had changed.
"Little Rock is not a big enough town to do two," Chow said last week.
The coming Chow Time 8 will be built on the empty lot where Mexico Chiquito once stood. Chow's lone Little Rock restaurant will serve "American home cooking and Asian food," he said, and should open barring more missteps in July 2013.
