Looks like Benton will be getting a two new restaurants in the near future.
Just shy of two years ago, MySaline wrote about the possibility of a Newk’s Eatery coming to Saline County. It didn’t not come to fruition at that time (scroll down for related stories links), but rumors have resurfaced, so I checked it out with the developer, The Retail Connection. Here is the current listing of businesses at Hurricane Village Shopping Center, showing lease contracts signed for Newk’s Eatery right behind Tacos 4 Life, as well as something I wasn’t even looking for – Panda Express next to Discount Tire.
I also contacted the Arkansas Department of Health and acquired documents showing Newk’s has applied for restaurant permits. Click the images to enlarge them. I will update when there’s more information.
