There’s a new restaurant coming to Benton soon. I’m updating this article from November where we originally told you about it.
As a child, macaroni and cheese was my favorite, and it still is in the comfort food category – most people are the same way. Macaroni and cheese just go together. But this new restaurant puts it together in ways you may not have imagined.
I Heart Mac & Cheese is a franchise with over 20 locations across the United States and they are rapidly expanding. According to their website, 15 more locations are coming soon. It doesn’t list Benton, Arkansas yet, but it will. The site states, “We are a fast casual concept restaurant specializing in customizable, made-to-order macaroni & cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches.”
Michael McNamara, the local franchisee said the restaurant was slated to open in February 2022 (that’s right now), but it’s looking more like April, since there is a shortage of restaurant equipment these days.
You can look forward to I ♥ Mac & Cheese to be located right next door to another business McNamara owns, Hotworx, in the Shoppes of Benton – 20320 I-30 N, Suite 100, Benton, Arkansas. Find them behind Red Robin and Freddie’s.
