This is a preliminary report. The reason not all news outlets have started running away with this is because it has a very real chance of not happening. The initial paperwork has been filed but the location and lots of other details still have to go through upper management at Logans. Right now, it's a non-story.

Really hope the upper management approves the location. We drive to Clarksville just to get a descent steak.

I've never been to one that isn't a filthy shit pit. A perfect match for Hoptown! The added attraction will be the horrible local service!

Yeah, I was wondering if we had enough people to fill the service positions.

Logans is cheaper and serves lower quality items.

Im just not feeling it. Most Logans seem to be a few seconds from an interstate road.

It would seem out of place here in Hoptown.

Why is it when something positive happens to this town people find a reason to gripe about it. Or when anything happens to the town they gripe about it.

You are so right, I am looking forward to another nice restaurant to choose from in Hopkinsville. Think positive, at least another restaurant means more jobs and more jobs means a stronger community.

Some people don't follow the mindless drones who think it is worth having a restaurant just for the sake of cheap and poorly made food and a handful of minimum wage jobs (or less cause I bet they pay "tip wages" to the servers). If someone has a legitimate reason to not want a redundant business in this town, I hardly see why they should be accused of wanting to put down the community or not wanting anything positive. I would love positive growth. Fast food chain restaurants pretending to be sit down family eateries are not that sort of growth.

I know that O'Charleys pay their employees 10$ an hour plus, I'm sure Logan's would too.

I think it will be good for this town something else besides a pizza place or another burger joint.

I love Logans! Probably one of my favorite places to eat. What I want to know Is...Are they ging to bring In their own cooks? If not Itll be a waste because the people In this town who will apply for the job are the same people who cook at other restaurants and cant cook worth a shyte.

That's not the point I was trying to make. My point is, when ANYTHING happens in this town, people start griping, water park-griping, rails-to-trails-griping, smoking ban- griping, new apts behind McDonald's-griping, new restaurant-griping. The only thing they don't gripe about is the great bargain that got at stupid Walmart. Of course this they're going to pay minimum wage or less, because that's just this town. God forbid that they actually have to pay a decent wage. This town will NEVER grow because people want something for nothing and Walmart can give them that.
I hate to say this but the water park is a money pit not worth the 3 million.

You keep mentioning managers as your examples. What would a servers yearly pay be without just bases on the wages you give them without tips? Please be honest. Most of your employees are not managers. You depend on your customers to directly support their wages through tips and that is a fact. It should be illegal for any kind of job to get away with paying people less than minimum wage for their work.

I don't know why you say that. I have heard of waitresses making GOOD tip money. I believe it gives them motivation to do their job to the best of their ability. If they just know they are going to get their hourly wages no matter what, what keeps them keeping the customers happy? They must be willing to serve people fast and have a good attitude and without that motivation there are a lot of people who would not do that. As long as they are good servers, they should make good money. MOST of the people who eat at steakhouses and such will leave a tip, but i am sure some don't(which completely sucks). Just think each table they serve gives them at least a $4 tip and I KNOW they can serve 5 tables an hour, so that's $20/hr. And if there are parties of more than 8 they automatically get 18%.

Oh yeah, and then add the little bit of a paycheck they get to that.
