Somerset —

Brook Ping, the developer behind Stonegate Centre, has been “very pleased” both with the progress on Steak ‘n Shake, and the overwhelming response Texas Roadhouse has received since it opened last December.
“The biggest impact to me is the economic impact of employing 170-plus people in this community,” said Ping of Texas Roadhouse.
He also says it helps in luring other potential businesses to the shopping center, located at stoplight no. 16A on South U.S. 27, next to Grand Central Place. 
“Business attracts other business,” he said. “There’s no doubt about that.”
Ping said he’s talked to other businesses that could eventually locate in Stonegate if things go well.
“Those are still on the table,” Ping noted. “There are some new opportunities.”
