A major boom in the local economy on the south side as more major businesses move in bringing hundreds of jobs. Dave & Buster’s is the latest business set to open Monday. A company spokesperson says there was a huge demand from Tucson residents wanting a Dave & Buster’s in the city. This is the first one in Southern Arizona. It offers over 135 games and has already brought over 240 new jobs to Tucson.
“We just really wanted to be within the community and wanted to be a central location,” explained Amy Delao, Dave & Buster’s assistant general manager. “So the northerners can come down and everybody on the south side can come up and every body on the east and west, we are really a central location for everybody.”
In the past couple months a Century Theatre, Planet Fitness and Lin’s Grand Buffet opened up. Ward 5 Council Member Richard Fimbre’s Chief of Staff says a Popeyes Kitchen will be opening next in the Tucson Marketplace located near South Park Avenue and Interstate 10 and they are working on bringing more restaurants and retail to the area.
