Newk’s Eatery sets sights on Benton location
Saline County will soon have a new eatery.
According to documents received from the Arkansas Department of Health, Newk’s Eatery will open in the Hurricane Creek Village shopping center in Benton.
At this time, no projected dates for construction or future opening have been set.
However, the location, according to maps provided through the Freedom of Information Act, will be behind Tacos 4 Life.
Also included in the request are renderings for the facility.
Currently, there are nine locations across the Natural State, including two in Little Rock and one in Hot Springs.
“We are in the restaurant business because we love food. We love experiencing food. We love preparing food. We love serving food.
And we live to perfect it,” according to the business’ website.
Newk’s was founded in
2004 by Don Newcomb, Debra Bryson and Chris Newcomb, the team that founded Mcalister’s Deli.
According to the website, as Chris Newcomb tested and perfected menu items for their new concept, it became apparent this venture would closely reflect the team’s personal passion in the kitchen. Many of the staple menu items were born from treasured Newcomb family recipes. Thus Newk’s was born — an abbreviated homage to the Newcomb cookbook.
“With that name comes a commitment to continually create extraordinary meals and experiences for our guests. We live for the tantalizing smells, sights, tastes and textures of meals that are made to perfections. We are obsessed with discovering new recipes and reimagining old favorites — especially our Newcomb Family Recipes. We insist on sourcing the finest ingredients. We are uncompromising about quality from the kitchen to table and our dedication to personal service. That’s a passion shared by everyone you will meet at Newk’s,” the website states.
