Sample international cuisine at annual VSU International Dinner


VALDOSTA — Business Roundup

The new Waffle House on Baytree can’t be more than a week or so from opening, as it doesn’t look like much is left to do on the inside or the outside of the restaurant.

The new Family Dollar at the corner of Northside and Forrest is moving along very quickly also.

If you’ve driven by the VSU North campus lately, you will see the incredible work going into the new Health Sciences and Business Administration building there. The massive structure is going to be such a great boon to our community.

Across the street from there is a development that has been in the works for some time, and in the last week or two, I’ve gotten a lot of questions as there’s movement on the property. According to the Realtor, the property is still planned for half a dozen or so professional or medical office buildings but for now, only the site preparation is underway with no announcements just yet.

The O’Neal restaurant empire continues to expand as another Ole Times Buffet is opening this month in Savannah in a former Ryan’s buffet location. It will be the third former Ryans that Pat O’Neal has purchased and turned into one of his successful buffets.

Sam’s is getting ready to do a major expansion to the store located on Norman Drive apparently, which is getting to be a really busy place these days, and will continue to grow as the next phases of the project around Academy Sports get underway.

There is a new restaurant being constructed on Bemiss across from Moody called the La Taqueria Mexican Grill. Still haven’t heard anything more from the Bad Habitz Saloon folks on a definite opening date for the restaurant on Gornto Road.

That’s it for this week, but if there’s something I missed, please let me know!
