Kochville Twp. area seeing several new businesses

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) - (06/18/14) - If you've taken a drive down Bay Road in Kochville Township, chances are, you've seen plenty of new businesses popping up.

Some local homeowners are thrilled to see the economy pick back up after years of decline.

"It's starting to come back now," said Saginaw native Rick Breidenbach, while enjoying a dish from Yogurt Yeti in Kochville Township.

Yogurt Yeti opened just over a year ago, and they're not the only newer business. You'll also find Panda Express, T. Dub's, the Vitamin Shoppe and Style Encore, just to name a few.

Gordmans promises to fill the long-vacant store next to Cabela's. According to their website, they plan to hire 100 associates and a store manager.

Restaurants and shops are taking a chance on Saginaw County.

"Change is always good," Breidenbach said. "This area's been through some hard times over the past years with the auto industry taking a dive."

One of those business owners set up shop right across the street from SVSU. Common Grind is co-owned by SVSU graduate Tamir Halees.

Five months ago, they opened their business. In August, they plan to add a drive-through component as well.
