A new food destination has arrived in Machesney Park and the 173 corridor.

Not long ago the 173 corridor was nothing but farm land. In the past few years, it has transformed into a bustling area of commerce.

The latest contributor to the area comes in the form of Potbelly.

According to WIFR, "The new business brings 25 more jobs to Machesney Park...Mayor Jerry Bolin says we can expect to see more businesses opening next year."

This is the second Potbelly to open in the area. The first, opened in 2007 at 6243 E State St, a building the sandwich shop shares with Starbucks.

The new Potbelly location is at 1419 West Lane Road in Machesney Park.
