Look out Omaha! PepperJax has opened a new location. This is the second location since August. The new restaurant is at 510 S 72nd Street, Omaha, NE 68114, just north of Nebraska Furniture Mart. The location features a brand refresh and updated look, new service model with cashier and kiosk ordering, and a convenient pre-order pick-up window. Now guests have the option to order ahead online or through the PJax app and pick up their order without having to leave their car. This is the second restaurant to open with an updated look. In August, PepperJax opened a location at 2444 S 132nd Street that has a traditional drive thru set-up.
The new restaurant is considered a location move. PepperJax had a different spot around the corner off 74th and Pacific that they have operated since 2006. The brand decided to move to 72nd street to a free-standing building. The addition of the pick-up window is the newest roll-out for the brand and something they are testing as a potential option for future locations.
Because PepperJax grills every entree to order and allows total customization, there are a lot of options and combinations for customers. The pre-order pick-up window is a potential alternative for drive thrus to assist guests in building their entrees conveniently from their device.
The location celebrated their opening with a VIP event that raised money for the American Cancer Society. It has been a company tradition from the beginning where they invite friends, family, and neighbors to get a sneak peak of their new restaurant. PepperJax serves free food in exchange for a monetary donation to charity. The event provides and environment for the staff to practice in a live customer setting and prepare for their opening day. The restaurant opened to the public on Wednesday, September 29th.
As for the future, the expansion in Omaha will continue with a new site located off 144th and I-80 that will open in the upcoming months. Omaha is where PepperJax started back in 2002 and continues to be a flagship for the brand. The company will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first location in January.
PepperJax operates in Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota. For more information or to stay in-the-know check out The Buzz at PepperJax Grill | Our Latest News and Events or follow us at PepperJax Grill | Facebook.
