It seems like only yesterday I was driving by the empty lot in Eastvale where a new Corky’s Kitchen & Bakery was to be built. Actually, it was a little over ten months ago.

I drove by again on Friday and discovered that the 24-hour restaurant was open!

Then, I spotted on the Corky’s website that a fourth Inland Empire location is planned for Corona, at 3811 Bedford Canyon Road, Suites A8-A11.

The Eastvale Corky’s, which joins locations in Rialto and Rancho Cucamonga, is at 12552 Limonite Ave, Suite 130.

There’s also a non-I.E. location in Ladera Ranch.

Corky’s headed to Eastvale…but don’t hold your breath

Included in a press release listing several recent commercial real estate transactions was this little tidbit:

EASTVALE, CA – David Wick and Brandon Beauchemin of NAI Capital’s Ontario office represented the lessee, Overeasy, Inc., DBA Corky’s Kitchen and Bakery in the lease of a 4,393 square foot retail property located at 12552 Limonite Avenue, Suite 130, Eastvale from WLPX Eastvale, LLC.  Corky’s Kitchen and Bakery anticipates a Fall 2011 Grand Opening.   Value and terms of the lease were not disclosed.

That’s right, Eastvalians, Corky’s Kitchen and Bakery is headed your way, but you’ll likely have to wait until this fall to get your 24/7 dose of Hobo skillets and Messina burgers.

Until then, the Rancho Cucamonga and Rialto locations are just a short drive up the 15 and down either direction on the 210. Road trip!
