ADDISON - The official announcement that Jack's Family Restaurants is coming to the town of Addison was made at a public hearing Monday night, May 1, when the town council adopted two resolutions concerning the project as well as met with Jack's officials.
Mayor Marsha Pigg and town council members welcomed Jim Avery, director of development for Jack's, and Betty Hester, regional director, at the public hearing, with Attorney Shane Cook presiding over the hearing.
The council adopted two resolutions - a certificate of indebtedness and a project development agreement, regarding the construction of a restaurant on the corner property at the intersection of Highway 278 and County Road 41.
Asbestos is already being removed from the old buildings on the property with plans to begin demolition of those old buildings next week, Avery told the mayor and council members. After the project begins, it should be completed within 125 days, he added.
Jack's will build a 3,500 square foot restaurant capable of seating 80 persons on the 2.5 acre lot which will also include 47 parking spaces. Plans are to hire 45 to 50 employees.
