It looks like the Hampton Inn is close to being open and I have also heard that the Bennigans will be a stand alone building next the motel and they haven't even started that building yet...not sure why Bennigans would come to Fayetteville when the company went bankrupt. Still not sure why we have a Hampton Inn when the other motels are never full...the Hampton Inn will be closed within a year after it opens. Just shows how stupid our local goverment is here.

They were originally supposed to have a Perkins Restaurant in that area. I drove by the other day and saw the Hampton Inn banner and it showed Perkins on the same banner. I didn't see the Bennigan's banner that was out there. All I saw in it's place was a giant dumpster for the construction crew.

First it was a Chillis then a Mellow mushroom then a OCharleys and now a Perkins. Next it will be a hot dog stand. It gets worse and worse.

I wonder if the hotel will be the only thing actually fulfilled. It would be funny if the city went to all of that trouble of making an access road for only a hotel.

Would anyone be suprised if this happened? This kind of thing is so typical of our local government.

Bennigans is coming and they did do bankrupt but are reopening a few of their places and building new in some places. They have downsized in numbers and word is their menus a mix of the different same type restaurants. Come on people we been moaning for years for a restaurant like this including me so lets think positive it will happen. I do know the building plans where discussed this week with the city.

I agree Rickey that we need more restaurants like this, but I wouldnt be suprised if it falls through. It seems to be the MO of our elected officials lately.
We also needs lots more places on the square and activity there, how can this be done?

Ive always said a sports bar/restaurant would go over big on the square. I think if not mistaken Tullahoma has three on their square and all are family oriented I believe.I have lots of ideas that I believe would open the city and county wide open but guess we all do.

It's nice to daydream about new businesses coming here like restaurants and bars. But what we really need is new businesses that will create real career-level jobs on a large scale. Factories and logistics centers and such. Sure, restaurants will create a handful of jobs, mostly temporary. But if so few people have jobs, there won't be enough people with enough money to spend there to keep it alive. And when you work in Huntsville or another of our neighboring rival cities, why would you go all the way back home to Fayetteville to patron one of our very limited selection of dine-in restaurants when you can just stay in Huntsville or Tullahoma for dinner and have a bevy of places to choose from? We need jobs first, and dining and entertainment later. The local government needs to learn to play ball with potential new industries, they need to learn to conduct city business and make decisions that inspire confidence in potential investors, and we need to tell the Good Ol' Boys to get good and gone. And don't start spewing that crap about "investors won't come here if there's noting to do when they get here." It's an economy, not a theme-park. Investors don't give a crap if there's a Bennigans, a Hooters, or a ridiculous skateboard park for their kids. They want to make sure that their investment will turn them a profit, period. When it comes to local accommodations, they just want to make sure there's a good hospital and good schools and maybe a decent motel for their corporate folks to stay at on trips here. Other than that, they want to make sure the town can accommodate a facility with low overhead and/or minimal investment, cheap utility rates, low local taxes and/or tax-breaks, adequate and stable infrastructure, and an ample/reliable workforce. I'll trade 10 Chili's and Zaxby's for one good factory that will create a good number of local jobs. And you know what? If we started bringing in good industry, the dining and entertainment industries would be beating down the door to get in.

ABSOLUTELY correct!! Our elected officials need to read this, get off their high horses, quite thinking of themselves, and work together to accomplish these tasks.

This must be someone that works for them cause non of those businesses were ever announced.

When is that Bennigan's restaurant going to be complete? They built the McDonald's in Meridianville in about a month. It seems that any new places coming into Fayetteville take their sweet time. They've been building that building since this Summer. It shouldn't take 6 months to build a building of that size.

It's amazing how you can go to any other town and business are built so quickly, but here it's ages and ages! I just hope a real restaurant lasts here... It isn't a Buffett so we will see!

Today I was heading to Huntsville and the new Race Way gas station in Hazel Green was already up and running. It took like no time to get that thing up. We are still waiting on a Bennigans. RIDICULOUS!

Fayetteville, the place where businesses aren't in a hurry to open, but are in a hurry to leave.

How come things take so long here. It is true that every where else gets things done fast and we all sit around and wait for ever.
