The city of Ring­gold ap­proved two an­nex­a­tion re­quests along Ga. 151 (Alabama High­way) that will be the site of two new fast­food restau­rants later this year.

On Mon­day night, March 26, the City Coun­cil unan­i­mously ap­proved both an­nex­a­tion re­quests and spoke to rep­re­sen­ta­tives about plans for Burger King and Bo­jan­gles’ restau­rants.

El­liott Daven­port, man­ag­ing part­ner of Home­town Folks LLC, spoke on be­half of Burger King and stated the com­pany is ex­cited for the op­por­tu­nity to open a Ring­gold lo­ca­tion.

“We had bought this lot next to Don Van­der­griff’s lot, which he’s go­ing to do a Bo­jan­gles’ and were go­ing to do Burger King there,” Daven­port said. “He’s go­ing to open in Septem­ber. ... Those chicken peo­ple are a lit­tle bit quicker than burger peo­ple, so we’re go­ing to open in Oc­to­ber.”

Mayor Mill­wood and the rest of the coun­cil ex­pressed sup­port for the busi­nesses that’ll be con­structed along Alabama High­way across from Wendy’s.

“It was my wife’s first job and she’s so ex­cited to have a Burger King com­ing in,” Mayor Mill­wood said.”

“Thank you all very much, we’ve been try­ing to come to Ring­gold for awhile and we are ex­cited,” Daven­port said.

The three lo­ca­tions are slated to cre­ate more jobs and bring more rev­enue into the city.

On Tues­day, Coun­cil­man Randall Franks posted a pro­mo­tional video on the mat­ter on so­cial me­dia.

“Th­ese eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment projects are bring­ing a sub­stan­tial in­vest­ment into our com­mu­nity,” Franks said.

Ring­gold res­i­dents can look for­ward to three new restau­rants com­ing to town later this year. The site of Arby’s is al­ready un­der con­struc­tion on Po­plar Springs Road be­hind the Tiger Mar­ket gas sta­tion. (Ca­toosa News photo/Adam Cook)
