Jacksonville could see business boom next year

Jacksonville - People in Jacksonville will see some new businesses in 2014. There's a lot of construction on Western Blvd.

You can expect to see a Zaxby's, Chipotle and other restaurants coming to the area, mostly along Western, within the next year.

Assistant City Manager Glenn Hargett says it's great news for those who are job searching.

"Jobs is a relative item," he said. "We're not aware of any other places closing down, and these taking it, so one can assume that these will create new opportunities here in the new year."
