Portillo's is advertising on its website that it's looking for a store manager for a position based in Rockford. A representative at the corporate headquarters couldn't confirm a restaurant is coming. But, she says, "If I live in Rockford, I'd be smiling right now."
The spokesperson says more information will be available next week.
