Wake up for waffles
Construction is in progress at the Franklin Shopping Center on Highway 43 in Russellville. Right now the work site is little more than a hole in the ground, but within three months it will be the home of 24-hour syrupy, buttery waffles, along with other diner favorites.
Presenting: Waffle House.
“We’re really excited to have them here,” said Mayor David Grissom, who confirmed the Waffle House last week. He said the restaurant is set to open at the beginning of June.
“We’ve been talking with them for some time – several years,” he said. “I have personally met with them and showed them several sites throughout the city.”
Grissom spoke highly of Waffle House’s menu and expressed the city’s excitement to recruit new restaurants to this area.
“They’re a great Southern chain,” Grissom said. “We’re looking forward to them being here in Russellville.”
Headquartered in Norcross, Ga., Waffle House restaurants have been in business since 1955. The restaurant boasts a menu of a variety of foods, with a breakfast focus and features signature meals, including favorites like hash browns, patty melts and, of course, waffles.
Each restaurant is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
