The first of the Corona themed restaurants had a soft opening today and will celebrate their grand opening on January 10th at The Legends at Village West in Kansas City. The restaurant, named Corona, Cantina #1, stems from a contest Corona held 4 years ago and the willing company, De Mexico Al Mundo in Mexico City, is now a partner to Corona and the parent company of the restaurant chain. Based on De Mexico Al Mundo's concept which won the contest, Cantina #1 will serve Mexican/Tex-Mex/Southwestern dishes and will have palm trees, a thatched cabana hut bar and waterfalls for a touch of the resort experience. The company has further plans to expand to Minneapolis in April and they are exploring locations in Las Vegas, Disney World in Florida, Canada, as well as airport operations. Sounds like a must-stop-at when passing through Kansas City!
