Construction begins on Texas Roadhouse restaurant outside Fashion Square Mall
Hiring for about 200 jobs at the restaurant will begin later this year
SAGINAW, Mich. (WJRT) - Construction is under way on a new Texas Roadhouse in the Saginaw area two and a half years after plans for the restaurant were revealed.
The Texas Roadhouse will replace the Pier 1 Imports store at 2508 Tittabawassee Road.
Texas Roadhouse hopes to open the nearly 7,500-square-foot restaurant sometime this fall depending on how weather affects the construction season. The restaurant will have capacity for 300 patrons, including at the bar.
Hiring for about 200 positions will begin later this year. About 60% of the jobs will be part time while 40% will be full time. The Saginaw location will be operated by a managing partner, who owns a share of the restaurant, rather than a general manager.
Texas Roadhouse, which specializes in hand-cut steaks and ribs, opened a location in Flint Township on the busy Miller Road corridor in 2015.
