National chains Olive Garden and Burlington have recently opened, as have locally owned restaurants The Shack Wings & Brews and Boozy Tacos and Tap.

Additionally, Dutch Bros Coffee and four other new businesses are currently under various phases of construction along Woodrow Bean Transmountain and Kenworthy.
