A Denny’s restaurant tentatively is scheduled to open Feb. 19 at 21195 N. John Wayne Parkway, according to corporate spokesperson Jillian Hutwagner.

Maricopa Chamber of Commerce Director Terri Crain said a ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Feb. 17.

The full-service restaurant, which is on a small lot near the John Wayne Parkway and Smith-Enke intersection, is expected to have a capacity of 160 people and a staff of 60-100.

Denny’s has applied for a liquor license with Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control. That application is before Maricopa City Council for recommendation on Tuesday.
