Here’s what readers on Facebook had to say about recent stories in The Daily Journal.
When Zaxby’s broke ground, we asked Facebook readers to name some other restaurants and businesses they’d like to see in Richmond County.
Cook-Out and Jack in the Box.
A steakhouse or an Olive Garden!
Enough with the fast food chains. How about a Trader Joe’s or Fresh Market?
Zaxby’s is the best in chicken. You might have to wait a few more minutes, but it’s worth it. I wouldn’t really call Zaxby’s a fast-food restaurant since they don’t cook it until you order it. They have very rigid standards.
I second a Fresh Market and Brueggers Bagels. Yummo!
Tammy Hope Bundy
A good fish market. Cook-Out. And a nice soul-food place. And a mall.

Richmond County needs something that we, the people can afford and can bring jobs to the people who are already here. So a movie theater, bus station, Target, Kmart or a mini-mall with 20 stores including a movie theater. We need jobs! How about a zoo?
A Starbucks or Chick-fil-A would do great there.
I wish we had more shops or entertainment being built. I agree with the movie theater idea.
Jamie Gulledge Goodson
A Krispy Kreme, IHOP, Golden Corral and a movie theater.
Chick-fil-A, IHOP, Starbucks, Red Lobster, a movie theater, a game room like Planet Fun that has a bowling center and a full-service snack bar that serves alcoholic beverages…all this would be nice.
Rebecca Gainey Deaver
Chili’s and Applebee’s!
Sandy Humber Ard
Why not build a mall with nearly 50 shops and space for a cafeteria full of restaurants? Perhaps even a brand-new theater!
I’m glad we’re getting something new!
Hannah Elizabeth Sweatt
Well, I think we need a decent steakhouse, definitely a movie theater, Cracker Barrel, Chick-fil-A, Krispy Kreme and a shopping mall. We do not need any more banks or convenience stores. If you want to keep the people who live in this county here and spend their money here instead of going out of town and giving it to other counties, you will have to build it and they will come!

We need a movie theater and a Starbucks. Maybe a water park or something?
Chick fil-A and Olive Garden. That way I won’t have to drive to Aberdeen to eat.
A movie theater, a Denny’s or IHOP, a Popeye’s or Cook-Out, Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts. Steak ‘n’ Shake and its prices are perfect for this area! Also, we need places to take kids and teens.
Restaurants are nice to have, but residents need jobs to make the money to eat there. What about trying to attract companies that will bring decent paying jobs to the county first?
