Business projects in the works

MILLEDGEVILLE — Milledgeville and Baldwin County are seeing a number of growth opportunities with new business developments popping up around town lately, primarily restaurants, along with a pet supply store and a senior daycare facility.

Some of the business developments in the midst of opening are:

• Petsense

The pet supply store is in the midst of opening between Swan’s Dry Cleaning and LongHorn Steakhouse in the Milledgeville Mall parking lot. Hull Storey Gibson Senior Vice President Ky Widener said in late August 2012 that the merchant was expected to open in the beginning of this year. Founded in 2005, Petsense is a leading national retail pet specialty chain focused on growth in under-served markets, including Dublin, Thomaston, Griffin and Commerce. The chain is currently the ninth largest pet specialty retailer in the country, according to Pet Business magazine.

• Local Yolkal Cafe

Utilizing The Baldwin’s street level retail space in downtown Milledgeville on West Hancock Street, owners Cliff and Jennifer Charnes expect to open this spring. The upscale breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant will serve up breakfast classics, including omelets, pancakes, waffles and numerous eggs benedict variations. Hours of operation are slated from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

• Firehouse Subs

Located in a portion of the former Blockbuster building, Owner William McComb expects to open the business in late March or early April. The restaurant chain will serve up its famous hot specialty subs, cold subs, salads and kid’s combos. Catering of sub, salad, cookie and brownie platters will also be available. Firehouse Subs in Milledgeville is slated to be open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 10 p.m. Friday through Saturday.

• Terry Ho’s Hibachi Express

Owners Chun and Sissy Fei Chow leased the former Long John Silver’s and A&W All American Food restaurant building next to Pizza Hut on North Columbia Street in early January. Slated to open in the beginning of April, the restaurant will serve up fast Asian-inspired foods, including egg rolls, salads, wraps, hibachi meats and noodles. Hours of operation are scheduled from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday with extended hours on the weekend.
