New empanada restaurant coming to Columbia Pike

An empanada eatery appears to be setting up shop on Columbia Pike.

The location at 2602-B Columbia Pike, next to the Domino’s and a laundromat, has a sign with the name Mpanadas.

As of late last week the windows were covered and a sign advertising the space as available for lease was in a heap on the ground nearby.

Although it is unclear who the business owner is, a permit application for 2602 Columbia Pike was submitted in June for a tenant buildout, according to the county’s permit search website.

The storefront used to house Boost Mobile, which has moved to 4103 Columbia Pike.

“It would appear that the space formerly occupied by a cell service store is being converted to a restaurant/carryout under the name Mpanada, which one would assume will be a Peruvian restaurant specializing in empanadas,” Amy McWilliams, deputy director of local business booster and community group Columbia Pike Partnership, tells ARLnow.

The retail manager for the storefront is KLNB, a real estate firm managing properties in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The store is 724 square feet in size, according to a KLNB leasing brochure. Representatives from KLNB did not have further information on the business.
