Apparantly, the business community thinks Oro Valley nees yet another "Bakery-Cafe." This time it's "Kneaders". It will be on the east side of Oracle Road, south of Linda Vista. It will be in front of the apartments called "El Corredor." Kneaders will be about 4,100 square feet. It will have inside and outside eating as well as a drive thru.
Kneaders is a franchise chain, operating in some Western states. It has one location in Tucson on Wilmot. Offerings include such healthy delights as their several "Kneaders Famous" sandwiches, the all important Panini in various 'ingredients', a crab roll, and a Tuscan sandwich.
The restaurant will be sited within 100 feet of Oracle Road.
