Look closely at the windows -- all of them are covered from the inside.

Folks in the community group speculate it's a popular Mexican restaurant looking for a new home or an additional location. Or Burger Barn

We've scoured numerous social media pages for hints or announcements. So far, nothing.

New franchisees have bought into the brand. Even some international partnerships according to Food Chain Magazine.

There's even a newer fast-casual concept focused on burgers, fries, chicken tenders and shakes -- all homemade, of course.

If that isn't enough, perhaps their catering or food truck might impress you, too.

Matt Place, Building Official, Planning/Zoning Administrator for Davison Township tells us no meetings have been set, regarding property details, at this time.

We'll update with confirmed information as soon as it's available.
