It looks like Benton, Arkansas is on the radar for a new restaurant to come to town. Sub sandwich chain Jersey Mike’s plans to open at Hurricane Creek Village – a.k.a. the shopping center with Academy and Kroger Marketplace. The restaurant has it listed on their website that a location is coming soon to 20770 Interstate 30, Suite 130.
The business began as a single shop in Point Pleasant, New Jersey in 1956. In 1971, an employee who was still in high school bought the business with a loan. Peter Cancro is still with the company today as CEO. There are currently around 2,000 locations globally and two locations in Arkansas – in Bentonville and Rogers. No word yet on when they will open, but check MySaline.com for updates.
