Logan's Roadhouse is right on the freeway at the 183 exit and many passing by are awaiting it's opening.
Another restaurant is opening in Bryant in early[more] January, according to the Bryant Planning Commission.
"Logan’s Roadhouse, a steakhouse previously announced as coming to Bryant, is set to open soon at 23115 Interstate 30 South, next to Chick-fil-A restaurant off Reynolds Road," said LaVenia Jones.
Logan’s was officially supposed to open on Dec. 18, but weather delays have caused the delay of the grand opening. Officials with Logan’s were not available for comment.
The cost of the Logan's Roadhouse project was $1,036,871 and bid on last June. There are currently three other locations in Arkansas in Conway, Fayetteville and Fort Smith.
Also coming to Bryant is a U.S. Pizza at the corner of Highway 5 and Springhill Road. Bryant has already welcomed a new pizza restaurant to the midtown area, Straw Hat Pizza.
U.S. Pizza is currently serving four locations in Little Rock and North Little Rock and is looking to expand in Conway, Bryant and Cabot.
Dexter Heard who opened his Straw Hat Pizza franchise restaurant in Midtown Bryant, said business has been good.
Other new restaurants and businesses said to be coming to Bryant include Red Lobster and a Dollar General store.
