BRYAN ECONOMY BOOSTED WITH NEW JOBS AND ECONOMIC INVESTMENT
Bryan, TX (September, 2007) . . . . The Bryan economy is getting a boost this month with the opening of a new Cotton Patch Café restaurant that opened on Thursday, September 13. The new building, located at 940 North Earl Rudder Freeway, will add between 70 and 90 jobs to the Bryan economy and over $1 million in local investment. “We believe the Bryan market is the right place to expand the Cotton Patch Café brand. We have had success with our nearby College Station location and decided to invest more in this community where our customers have supported us so well,” states Mike Patranella, co-owner of the restaurant chain.
The new free-standing location boasts approximately 5,000 square feet of dining and operational space, with 180 seats for guests. The menu features all the traditional and grilled favorites customers have come to expect, with some new items like Wedge Salads and Blackened Mahi Mahi.
Cotton Patch Café, headquartered in Irving, Texas, has 30 restaurant locations across Texas and New Mexico. Additional locations are slated to open in Waxahachie, Rockwall, Wichita Falls, Tyler and Georgetown, Texas by early 2008.
