Cheddar’s is coming in 2013

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Cheddar’s Casual Cafe, normally called Cheddar’s, will open sometime next year next to the Cracker Barrel in London.

Lee Greer, owner of Cheddar’s, said nothing is set in stone. The only plan is to have it open by 2013.

The company bought 3 acres of land on Faith Assembly Church Road in September for $1.5 million.

Cheddar’s is an American chain of casual dining restaurants. They have burgers, pub food, sandwiches, and subs at reasonable prices.

The chain was founded in 1978 in Arlington, Texas, by Aubrey Good and Douglas Rogers. More than 80 Cheddar’s restaurants operate throughout the United States, primarily in the South and Midwest.

Cheddar’s does not advertise in any medium, instead relying on word of mouth.

Lexington has currently two Cheddar’s restaurants.  A third will open soon.

More information will be available in the next few months.
