Interesting, the same company is currently renovating a space across from the Walmart on State of Franklin in Johnson City. Looks very similiar to All Care dental which recently opened on roan street.
I just don't understand why these companies feel they have to cram their restaurant into the East Stone Commons in order to be successful. Yes, historically that is restaurant row but it just cant handle much more. The Pavilion NEEDS restaurants.
Maybe Kingsport is about to pick back up. See some of that growth like we had right before the recession. In many regards Kingsport has been successful in playing catch up. Maybe we will starting seeing some growth with some modern 21st century chains, not building things most communities had in the 90s. The buffalo joint is a start.
. I have heard from several people in knoxville that the Rush is actually looking at the old Belk's Home store in the Kingsport Mall??

The Pavilion has done very well but I agree we need some more places to eat at that location! Zaxby's has done well in that location and really it's time such a large shopping center had more than just one Restaurant. I haven't heard of any more places coming up in that regard but if I do I will let you all know.

I will tell everyone where Red lobster will be. Right beside LongHorn Steakhouse. Those ratty old hotels and maybe even the Waffle House will be torn down to make way for Red Lobster. I work for Darden. I know. The deal has already been sealed. The only thing they have to wait for is the current leases to run out which happens in just a few months.

Leases have ran out. Darden is looking there, but no deal has not been signed. The problem is that the lot size is too big for one store, too small for two big stores. Plus they are waiting to be sure marquee goes behind Kmart. I also work for darden, they dont say where they are going unti they have everything in place. That's the top spot, but a lot of things have to be in place.

Marquee seems to be pretty set on going behind K-Mart. Of course they were going into the Pavilion and that fell through so you never know.

Sweet Frog opened not to long ago at the Pavilion. It's a yogurt bar and it's pretty good. Which Which has also been open a while and I like it as well. No word on anything else at the moment.

Just to let anybody know the Snap Fitness sign is up but the building is FAR from being complete. The store is empty now with some paint buckets inside and well a completely empty building. It's going to be quite some time before the gym opens up.

He Office Depot in kingsport has the no. 2 in the nation print shop and top 15 in the nation. They just signed a new contract and spent a bunch on remodeling the store last year. Wall Street is a long ways away from kingsport, and even though the national franchise is havin problems, most stores around here for the exception of Kmart and stores in the mall have exceeded the national average.
