Biz Buzz: Perkins is coming back to Lincoln


Perkins fans will be happy to know that the restaurant chain is coming back to Lincoln.

A building permit was filed this week for a new standalone Perkins Restaurant & Bakery at 7301 Husker Circle, which is right near the 27th Street exit on Interstate 80.

A company called CyHawk Hospitality, which opened a new Perkins in Omaha in July and owns more than a dozen in Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri and South Dakota, said at the time that it was looking to open a Perkins in Lincoln in spring 2019.

CyHawk officials could not be reached for comment about the building permit.

Two Lincoln Perkins Restaurants owned by a different franchisee closed their doors earlier this year. One at 2900 N.W. 12th St., near the Lincoln Airport, closed in January. The other one, at 48th and O streets, closed at the end of April and was torn down to make way for a new Chick-fil-A.
