Braintree officials approved a food license this week for Qdoba Mexican Grill, which is expected to open in September as part of the new restaurant and retail complex on Forbes Road.
The Board of License Commissioners voted 3-0 to approve the permit at its Tuesday meeting, during which the board also gave the go-ahead for a Hingham-based industrial sealing company to install two fuel tanks at the former Coca-Cola property on Granite Street.
Sealcoating Inc. is re-locating from an industrial park in Hingham to the Braintree site because it provides more space, company representatives . The family-owned company was founded more than 50 years ago and focuses on municipal bridge and road work.
The license board approved a Flammable Storage License for the installation of an aboveground 10,000 gallon tank (7,000 for diesel fuel and 3,000 for gasoline) and another 1,000-gallon aboveground tank for liquefied petroleum gas.
In addition to Qdoba Mexican Grill – a "fast casual" restaurant chain based in Colorado – other confirmed businesses at the Hyatt Place complex include Jared the Galleria of Jewelry and a standalone Starbucks, along with the existing T.G.I. Friday's.
Representatives for developer Carpenter and Company have declined to confirm others, though Qdoba construction manager Stephen DelRose said on Tuesday that Potbelly Sandwich Shop and Five Guys Burgers and Fries will also be coming to the shopping center.
The grill will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., DelRose said, with a capacity of 54 people. Construction will begin in two to three weeks and the restaurant should open in mid or late September.
