They expect to start hiring hourly employees in mid October, with a total of between 90 and 100 full- and part-time employees.
The restaurant is designed to seat between 250 and 280 diners, with some outdoor patio seating.
The building also has 2,500 square feet that is intended for an as-yet-unnamed retail tenant.
Bassett said he is pleased to see more than 100 jobs coming to town, even if the majority offer a low pay rate.
“We know that they are hourly jobs and do not pay high wages but the salary that those who take the positions is important to them and for some will be an opportunity to have a job and begin their career or to supplement a position that they already have,” Bassett said. “Those jobs are important to those people who will be taking them and every job adds to the local economy.”
The Town Council approved $1.8 million in water and wastewater infrastructure improvements earlier this summer.
That included $339,000 for the Sorrell Avenue wastewater lift station, which serves Consumer Square. The town was able to secure a commitment of $45,000 toward that project from Benderson Development, the owner of Consumer Square.
At the time, Bassett said that is an example of the type of public/private partnership the town wants to see more often.
