The Colton's Steak House and Grill franchise has officially announced its intentions to open a new restaurant in Sand Springs in the RiverWest development. It is expected to open in the Spring of 2018.
The restaurant will be the only steak house in Sand Springs and one of only four eateries in the development. Also in RiverWest are McDonald's, IHOP, and El Maguey.
"We are thrilled to welcome Colton's Steak House and Grill to Sand Springs," said Mayor Mike Burdge in a statement. "Our citizens asked for a steak house, and we are pleased to deliver."
Colton's is based in Arkansas and has 36 restaurants in 8 states, according to a report. It is also located in Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. Sand Springs is only the second city in Oklahoma to receive a Colton's location.
"Colton's Steak House and Grill has a casual western atmosphere, great menu choices and outstanding service," said owner Mark Dean. "We look forward to serving the Sand Springs community."
The RiverWest development's most recent business to open was El Maguey Authentic Mexican Restaurant, an existing Sand Springs business that relocated from a rented facility in the Shops at Adams Road. A Warren Clinic facility is currently under construction, also a relocation effort, and an ALDI grocery store broke ground this week.
Also located in the development are an O'Reilly Auto Parts, CVS pharmacy, Holiday Inn Express & Suites, and Centennial Baptist Church.
The City of Sand Springs released a Youtube video announcing the development and showing off an existing Colton's Stakehouse.
