Zippy's Restaurants announced their expansion into Las Vegas, NV Tuesday morning, and have begun a formal search to find a location.

The new Zippy's is the first restaurant outside of Hawaii, and on the continental U.S.  This will be the 25th location overall.

With a schedule to open in 2019, the owners say it's just the beginning of further growth and expansion.

“For many years, we have been asked to expand Zippy’s to the mainland, and we believe that the Zippy’s brand will be well-received in Las Vegas,” said Zippy’s CEO Jason Higa.

Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) is the official real estate firm Zippy's has retained to find the appropriate location.
