New Bern is getting a couple of new chain restaurants.
City Planner Kevin Robinson confirms that Chipotle Mexican Grill and Panera Bread will build locations at the U.S. 17 and U.S. 70 interchange.
The two restaurants will be side-by-side and be built in front of Books-A-Million.
The city planner said while site plans and permits have been approved for both, there is no timetable yet for a groundbreaking.
Earlier this year, Chipotle announced it was locating a restaurant in Greenville.
