I have lived in Statesboro for almost 16 years and I have seen many changes in that time. I can remember when the bypass was only 2 lanes and where the other lanes are now were just grass. I also remember a time before Applebee’s, Longhorn, etc. Thankfully progress came to the ‘boro, and is still coming. In the past year Statesboro added Olive Garden to its list of restaurants, next week they add Cracker Barrel, and sometime after that Panera Bread.  Statesboro has grown in terms other than food establishments, with Books-A-Million, Hobby Lobby and the addition to Hacker’s with its bowling alley and arcade.

If you were on a committee deciding what businesses (in specific or in general) to ask to come to town, what would it be and why?
