Bas­trop will soon wel­come a host of new restau­rants and busi­nesses to town.

Among the new planned eats are Denny’s, Burger King and Cici’s Pizza.

The city’s eco­nomic devel­op­ment cor­po­ra­tion an­nounced last week that site plans had been ap­proved for both Denny’s and Burger King, which are set to open on the cor­ner of Childers Av­enue and Texas 71 in the Bas­trop Sta­tion shop­ping cen­ter. The restau­rants are work­ing through the city’s per­mit­ting process, the Bas­trop Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Corp. said, and there is no spe­cific time­line for when they will open.

Cici’s Pizza should be up and run­ning by Oc­to­ber, its own­ers said. Con­struc­tion is un­der­way, and crews have al­ready placed a sign at the Colorado Cross­ing Shop­ping Cen­ter on Loop 150, where the restau­rant will be lo­cated.

Re­tailer Kays Jeweler is mov­ing in to the shop­ping cen­ter at Texas 71 and Texas 304 near Chick-fil-A. It is ex­pected to open in the next few months, the cor­po­ra­tion said.

Across the street, at the Grove re­tail devel­op­ment, Se­ton plans to build its new med­i­cal cam­pus with am­bu­la­tory care ser­vices and of­fices for pri­mary and spe­cialty care physi­cians. It is on track to open in late 2018.

The eco­nomic devel­op­ment cor­po­ra­tion said a free-stand­ing emer­gency room called Premier Physi­cians is also open­ing soon. It is work­ing on site plans for its lo­ca­tion near Shae­fer Boule­vard at Pe­can Park.

The famed Bas­trop Buc-ee’s, known for its clean re­strooms and end­less rows of gas pumps, is also plan­ning to add 22 new fu­el­ing sta­tions to the north side of the build­ing, since its 36 pumps are al­ways busy, city staff said. The Bas­trop City Coun­cil last week ap­proved a re­quest to in­stall canopy light­ing over the new pump sta­tions.
