FEB 1 CONSTRUCTION STARTED : As reported by a local newspaper recently, Darden’s branded restaurant Olive Garden received a construction permit on June 2nd, 2011 but has yet to start construction at the Carrollton Crossroads Shopping Center. Our digging has uncovered uncertainties in regards to this actually happening again this month. The construction company US General Construction Inc from Alpharetta, Georgia states, “Property owners are coming to terms”. The expected ground breaking per US General is sometime now around Jan 23rd, 2012. Darden’s spokesperson would not comment since this project has no green light. Darden suggests we invite all the Carrollton-area guests to continue dining with them at the Olive Garden in Douglasville at 6710 Douglas Blvd. This is a developing story that we will keep you posted on. I personally love Olive Garden!
