PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Paragould will soon have a new Italian eatery and an optometry group familiar with Jonesboro residents.

On Monday, Haag Brown Commercial in Jonesboro announced plans for the opening of a Fazoli's as well as a new site for Elite Eye Care.

The restaurant and doctor's office are part of the Elite 412 Plaza that will be built on the former Sunset Motel site across from Arby's.

An employee of a business in the area said he is excited about the new businesses on the block. 

"I'm excited to have new business next door to us, I'm excited to have a new restaurant next door to us. I got a group full of guys that love to eat so, that works out for us.  It's exciting any time we have new business in town, you know, hopefully, it'll kind of boost us up being right next door to us," Nick Robinson of RNR said. 

Robinson said having a restaurant and an eye care center in the area will provide good business opportunities for the area, as well as good traffic. 

Demolition of the hotel site is expected soon with construction to follow.

Haag Brown states both businesses in the plaza should be open in early Spring 2018.
