Reading between the lines…

Welp- I think we can finally kill the rumors that Olive Garden is coming to Columbus. (At least for now… you know those will resurrect in a couple years…)

As I was browsing the inter-webs- This article popped up, and I thought- ooh! New Olive Garden menu items YAY!

Insert instant hunger for unlimited salad and bread sticks HERE!

As I was reading the article- I came across this sentence….

“Same-store sales at Olive Garden, which has about 820 locations, have declined in five of the last eight quarters. Darden, which also owns Red Lobster and LongHorn Steakhouse, recently announced it is “significantly” cutting Olive Garden store openings to focus on attracting new customers.”

So unless there is a secret plot afoot…. Olive Garden is NOT coming to Columbus anytime soon. Sorry to be Debbie Downer.

On the bright side- we now have a Qdoba and Noodles and Company! YAY!
