Burkburnett businesses on the rise

BURKBURNETT, TX (TNN) - New businesses are popping up all around Burkburnett since the start of the year.

Taco bell, a new convenience store, and a new car wash are all coming to Burkburnett next.

Businesses are getting interested in building new locations or filling in old ones, like Ace Hardware recently taking over what used to be Hayes General Store.

“The individuals that own that, they own multiple ace hardware stores," Richard Gordon, planning director for Burkburnett, said. "They moved in they liked our market they liked several of the options available to them and just recently opened.”

Giving more options for residents to shop at and more things to do in their spare time.

Also, making the housing market start to crunch, as more people move into the city.

“Right now if you’re looking for a house there’s a tighter market than there’s been in years here,” Gordon said.

This doesn’t seem to be a quick influx.

Gordon says the future is looking a little bright for the city.

“I think we’ve got a good future for the next year or two, I see it looking real good, maybe beyond that,” he said.

Gordon said that the city expects about 30 million dollars worth of economic impact to come from these businesses this year.
