Opp mayor: Still talking to restaurant; will it be BBQ?

Opp Mayor John Bartholomew said Wednesday that negotiations continue with a franchisee planning to build a restaurant on the bypass.

Bartholomew said he expects an answer in the next two weeks and plans to call special meetings of the council and the utility board as both must approve the contract.

The Opp News reported this week that Golden Rule Bar-B-Q would locate here.

The Star-News was not able to verify that on-the-record, locally, though a Google search of the restaurant chain lists Enterprise, Pelham, Millbrook, Andalusia, Wetumpka, Opp, Evergreen as future locations in the search results on the company’s website.
