South Georgians get a new place to eat

October 22, 2007

Lee County-  Lee County's newest restaurant is open for business.

Chili's Restaurant along Ledo Road opened for lunch Monday. Officials from both Lee and Dougherty County were on hand to cut the ribbon and officially open the restaurant. Customers and new employees alike have been anxious for Chili's grand opening.

"Starting out we did no advertising and we had over a thousand team members apply. Guests have come by wanting to see the building, get a sneak peak, we've shown several of them what the restaurant looks like on the inside," said Karen Murphy, Chili's Manager.

The new restaurant expects to add traffic to an already congested area. Owners want a traffic light at the entrance to Wal-Mart, but they're not sure they'll get it in time for the holiday rush.
