New Restaurant in Stanton? 9/6/13
CBS 7 News
According to the chamber, the new owners of the Comfort Inn may decide to open a new restaurant in town. They said there are only three or four restaurants in the city, depending on restaurant definition, and in the evenings, there are only two restaurants open. One resident says she’s excited that this could be a great place to take a family in the evenings.
At the last census, there are about 2,500 people in the city of Stanton and about another 2,500 in the surrounding area that makes up Martin County. Sheriff Woodward says that “in 2015, our population is expected to double or triple.”
With the growth in population and with Stanton being landlocked, the city struggles to expand. Some residents feel restaurants like this one that may open, would be steps in the right direction.
