Steak ’n Shake hiring as Stonegate thrives

Texas Roadhouse a major success; 170 jobs have been created at Centre

(Continued)

Somerset —

Cordell said the store will probably have a soft opening in February, with a wider campaign and grand opening in March.
Brook Ping, the develop behind the Stonegate Centre, has been “very pleased” both with the progress on Steak ‘n Shake, and the overwhelming response Texas Roadhouse has received since opening on December 9.
“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 — some he was in communication with back around the time the Steak ‘n Shake deal was finalized, and other, newer talks — but nothing firm yet and nothing he could discuss.
“Those are still on the table,” he said of the older discussions. “There are some new opportunities.”
