TGI Friday’s grand opening week away

The city of Dothan is only weeks away from getting a state of the art TGI Fridays.

It will open at 5 pm, on July 10, and its regular hours will continue from 11 am until 2 am. The restaurant's design is only one of six in the United States and Canada.

It will feature eight plasma screens, and a new menu. Restaurant owners plan to hire up to 165 employees. General Manager Mike Bryan says coming to the circle city was an easy choice.

“We're very glad to be here, we're going to give you a great product, and a good time at a reasonable price and we can't wait to see everyone come out here,” said Bryan

Construction on neighboring Olive Garden is expected to be completed in August, and it should also be open for operation around the same time.
