New Olive Garden planted in Oak Cliff marks restaurant growth spurt
https://www.dallasnews.com/business/res ... owth-spurt

The new Olive Garden, which officially opened last week, is the third major draw to open in The Canyon in Oak Cliff, a mixed-use development that also has a new Buffalo Wild Wings and the Residence Inn by Marriott Dallas at The Canyon, a 103-room extended stay hotel that opened in April.

"We convinced the restaurant chains that there's a market here," he said. "It wasn't easy because there was nothing else there to convince the Buffalo Wild Wings and Olive Garden to take the risk and build a store here and [to feel] it would succeed. We knew it, I knew it from the market.

Not that I am a huge fan of Olive Garden but I am surprised they needed to be convinced. Besides the obvious lack of restaurants in that area it appears that those at Cockrell Hill have thrived and the amount of traffic passing by on I-30 is significant.
