MEDFORD, Ore. — New restaurants are on their way to Medford and hundreds of jobs could come with them. Construction for the Texas Road House is well underway next to Sportsman’s Warehouse.
A Jimmy John’s Sandwich Shop has also purchased permits to open a restaurant in Medford however no specific location has been selected.
Texas Roadhouse officials say they are looking to fill more than 100 positions. This will be the chain’s first location in Oregon and officials say it is a sign of the growing community.
“The location is perfect for us, the families, a lot of families, and we are a valued concept so we can add value to our guests that come in. I think we’re going to see Medford start growing and that’s a really, really good thing for the community,” Hal Reynolds, the managing partner with Texas Roadhouse.
The restaurant is on pace to open its doors in mid-June.
