I am thinking of starting/opening up a business in Georgetown. I have a few things in mind, retail mainly, no food, or something for the kids to do because there is NOTHING here! Just want some insight from the local community as to what you would like to see here in Georgetown. Thanks in advance!

Would like to see a mini-golf/arcade/bumper boat, basically some type of family fun park.
Stores that sell reasonably priced, fresh produce. I travel to Meijer weekly as Kroger/Walmart produce is not fresh and both are expensive.
Logans or Texas Roadhouse.
Raising Canes or Zaxby's.
Firehouse subs/Orange Leaf/Culvers
A decent pizza place, Old Chicago/LaRosa's, etc.
A real gas station not called Speedway.
Retail:
Meijer and Target.
Yes-some of this may hurt downtown, but with the mess the state made on Broadway, who can get downtown anymore?

Zaxbys is already bought the land next to Burger King on S25, so they will be here soon!

Retail will be tough in this town. I can't count the number of small businesses that have closed. The only thing that seems to stay are dry cleaners, churches and fast food joints.
I remember a few (billiard hall and gun shop) that seemed to be open just a few months.

If I were to gamble, it would be on a unique pizza place with games for the kids- like a chuck e cheese but for older kids. There is a lot of profit in pizza. Just be sure to get a beer license.

Or....mix it into a sports style pizza/beer joint on game days and nights. You could have different themes for weekdays versus weekend nights. Save us a drive to Lexington to get away from our kids!

Good luck!

A pool hall/nightclub they don't have anything here. Needs to serve alcohol too! Keep it clean. Hire good people who can help run it. Should b able to make some good money out of it.

I would like another Pain Clinic set up shop in Georgetown... with gas as high as it is, it makes it tough to get to Cincinnati, or Pikeville to reach them good doctors!

Solid Platinum or Deja Vu. Girls can make $1,500 a night!
Billiards

I agree with the previous poster - a pool hall would be FANTASTIC. You have to drive to Lexington (or better yet, Northern Kentucky) to get a good game and have had to for years. Stamping Ground had a pool hall years ago but with the tiny population and distance it didn't hold up too well. I think one would do great here.
With the recent passing of new alcohol sales ordinances, it'd be a great time to do it too. However, if the idea of an alcohol-serving establishment sounds risky, perhaps a pool hall with attached arcade or something similar. Anything like that would be something new in town and give us all something fun to do.

There was a billiards place in town already on US 25. It replaced that fishing and hunting store. Lasted a few months then shut down. Maybe it was the location, maybe the timing. Never saw many cars there.

I would definitely recommend another decent food option. I often regret moving to Georgetown from Lexington only because I sometimes have to drive back to Lexington to get a good food option. Glad to hear Zaxby's maybe going in next to Burger King. I am also hearing that a steak place, I think 's may be going in next to the new Kroger on the bypass. Bring Popeyes back.

I heard that Orange Leaf is going to be inside Kroger. I also heard that Qdoba is coming to Gtown from one of their Lexington locations a while back but have not seen or heard anything since.
