Travis Hankins, survey technician with Central Arkansas Professional Surveying, surveyed the former site of Superior Chevrolet at 915 E. Oak St. for a potential Cheddar's Casual Cafe Monday during the wind chill advisory.

The former site of Superior Chevrolet at 915 E. Oak St. is under contract with an unknown developer.

T.J. Lefler, partner with Sage Partners Real Estate Solutions, represents the family who owns the property.

“The Katherine S. Dean Trust has the property under contract with a developer,” he confirmed Monday.

Two surveyors were at the former Superior Chevrolet site surveying property lines, fences, sewers and drainage systems during the wind chill advisory Monday.

Brandon French, crew chief, and Travis Hankins, survey technician, with Central Arkansas Professional Surveying said they were assessing the property for a potential Cheddar’s Casual Cafe.

Lefler said the developer isn’t ready to make himself known and Lefler doesn’t know what he has planned for the property, but with 7.44 acres, there’s enough room for more than a Cheddar’s.

Wes Craiglow, deputy director of development for the City of Conway, said according to site plans submitted to the planning department, the developer plans to replace the old Superior Chevrolet dealership with an 8,000 sq. ft. restaurant space anchored by two other retail/commercial structures.

The unknown developer is meeting with the City for the first time this morning in a Neighborhood Meeting required prior to any PUD rezoning in the downstairs conference room in City Hall at 10:30. The meeting is open to the public.

Hmm

They could keep it as a car lot and sell it to whoever owns all the cars taking up the entire lot of the Dave Ward Exxon. Maybe then they would have room for actual customers.

Meeting rescheduled

The Neighborhood Meeting was rescheduled for 1:30 p.m. because the developer's flight was delayed. Reporter Joe Lamb is at City Hall covering the meeting now. We should have an updated story soon. Thanks.

Good stuff

From a bit of research, Cheddars seems like a decent enough chain restaurant with some healthy options and thats better than many places. I'm seeing gutbombs do pretty badly, and I wonder why people arent looking at opening a fast food healthy restaurant. Conway is a prime place for such a place and the place that puts a lower sodium, less GMO, nutrition transparent, and at least partially organic restaurant is going to CLEAN UP. Don't think so? Look at the organic explosion at Kroger on Salem. We consumers forced that. Remember that busy people interested in health tend to have good incomes and we cant hardly eat any of the currently offered fast food in the state...

I agree with jw70

Only wealthy people deserve healthy food.
