You might have a new place to sit down and have a meal this summer...
The City of Hastings will soon add another dining establishment.
A space on the North Side of town has been purchased for a Perkins Restaurant.
Construction is set to begin this spring.
The exact location is just north of the Taco Bell in the Cimarron Plaza.
Hastings Development made the announcement last night.
They called the folks in Norfolk and heard good things about their experience with Perkins.
But Dave Rippe of Hastings Economic Development is hoping the city can ride this wave throughout the year.
He hopes a new restaurant is just the tip of the iceberg for Hastings.
"I think there's a lot out there for Hastings right now,” Rippe said. “And obviously there's a lot out there's a lot of potential for this community. We're working on a lot of fun projects and we hope to see some really good things happen in 2014."
If everything goes according to plan, the restaurant should be up and running this summer.
