The City of Tyler is seeing more construction for new restaurants. More new business means more options for East Texans according to Tom Mullins, president/CEO of the Tyler Economic Development Council.
Fuddruckers is being built across from UT Tyler and is expected to open this fall. Potbelly’s Sandwich Shop will have a location on South Broadway in front of Target.
A Saltgrass Steakhouse location is under construction on South Broadway next to Colonial Hills Baptist Church.
According to Mullins, retail shops and medical centers have contributed to Tyler’s growth pattern.
“They wanna see new construction, they wanna see high household incomes,” Mullins said. “And Tyler when you look at all those factors and traffic flow all those factors show a strong economy for someone coming in here.” 
The economic development council is always looking to attract new companies to bring money to city.
Mullins expects to see growth all across Tyler in the future.
