JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A new restaurant known for its steaks, ribs and salads will be opening its doors and will be hosting pre-opening events to raise money for Court Appointed Special Advocates.
According to a media release, Texas Roadhouse, 1813 S. Caraway Rd., will open to the public on Monday, Oct. 21.
Restaurant officials announced in October 2018 that they would be building a restaurant in Jonesboro.
Officials said the restaurant also plans to train new cooks, kitchen staff and meat cutters at the restaurant this week by serving local firefighters and guests at a local homeless shelter.
The restaurant will also host invitation-only events before it opens to raise money for CASA.
“Being a strong community partner is part of our mission,” said Eric Moore, managing partner. “CASA’s mission is to help local children, in their greatest time of need. We’re thrilled to partner with this amazing organization and can’t imagine a more meaningful way to celebrate our opening.”
The official ribbon-cutting will be at 3 p.m. Monday.
When the restaurant opens, it will employ 210 people.
