Central Arkansas: The Place to Be!

You know an area is booming when Dave & Buster’s comes to town! The long-awaited franchise is scheduled to open its doors in Little Rock, specifically at 11900 Bass Pro Parkway, possibly later this year. Dave & Buster’s offers a unique business model that appeals to everyone from young children to grandparents, offering food, fun, and games for all. Its addition is sure to bring even more traffic to Central Arkansas.
Dave & Buster’s is hardly the only franchise to take notice of the Central Arkansas market. In fact, Dallas-based La Madeleine recently announced a multi-unit agreement and the installation of a location in Little Rock. According to QSR online, "La Madeleine has the ability to fully immerse itself into the fabric of many of America’s most attractive communities, and we are thrilled to introduce our unique and beloved brand to new markets throughout this attractive region.” This bakery/café offers fast, casual dining and appeals to shoppers and workday diners alike. Its model is conducive to constant guests throughout the day, due to their offerings for all meals.
A further testament to growth in Little Rock is the continuing revitalization effort in the MacArthur Park area of downtown. Regrowth in older areas of town, coupled with new development, certainly signifies a metropolitan area moving in the right direction. According to KTHV, "Plans for a retro bowling alley and a German beer hall are in the works. It's set to be placed right across the street from Rock Region Metro's Travel Center. The plans have already gone before the Historic Commission, and they say a bowling alley and beer hall are just a small part of big plans for this area.”
And that’s not all. Also according to KTHV, Little Rock has plans to add the Little Rock Rangers soccer team, in addition to a semi-pro football team. "The new team is just starting up. In 2016, the Little Rock Rangers will compete in the South Region of the National Premier Soccer League. It's a small start that will hopefully make soccer a large attraction in central Arkansas,” according to the club's president Jonathan Wardlaw (via KTHV). Games are planned for War Memorial Stadium, and the team hopes to have food trucks and craft beer at games.
New businesses thinking about Central Arkansas should certainly find these new and incoming businesses helpful for their own business plans. With increased retail, restaurant, and sports offerings comes new shoppers, diners, and spectators – and that is always good for business!
