Three chain restaurants have signed agreements to build in the final phase of McCandless Crossing.
"The three restaurants which have signed are Bonefish Grille, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Carrabbas," said Bruce Betty, McCandless Land Use Administrator. "They're planning five restaurants total along that stretch of McKnight Road."
Betty said the developer, AdVenture Development, is also hoping to lure a very popular speciality grocery store.
"We'd love to have Trader Joe's, but that's not a definite, they haven't signed," said Betty. But perhaps for good luck, the Trader's Joe name is on the current aerial sketch of McCandless Crossing.
Betty said there is also talk of a short stay hotel, adjacent to the 12 screen Cinimark Movie theater, but the hotel industry wants to gauge the success of the Home 2 Suites by Hitlon, under construction, next to LA Fitness, before deciding on a second hotel.
