It’s official: the Bulletin reports that Olive Garden has filed for their building permit for Bend. They plan to be located next to Staples and Michaels on the north side of town, in the big empty lot just southeast of them.
Of course, this only means they’re still probably two years out from opening. And I can’t remember if Olive Garden is relatively inexpensive or not, but I’ll guess that they’ll be pretty popular regardless.
I’m sure Johnny Carino’s is thrilled.
