Default WE NEED AN OLIVE GARDEN & RED LOBSTER IN TV - Help with an EMAIL CAMPAIGNE

:hot:
We need to lobby for these additions to The Villages.... Darden Restaurants owns Olive Gargen, Red Lobster, Bahama Breeze,Smokey Bones BBQ and Grill. Send an email to corpgrowth@darden.com and suggest they look at The Villages.

Cut and Past below or make up you own message.....

To Whom it may concern,

I live in central Florida in a 55+ community called The Villages. This community currently has over 40,000 homes ( about 60,000 retirees ) and will build out at 75,000 homes ( over 100,000 retirees ) in 5 years. There are already 63 restaurants here ( Check this site out http://home.comcast.net/~thevillages...lub/page1.html ) and we need more.

Here is some information about the demographics and traffic current and projected. http://www.thevillagescommercialprop...fic-counts.asp

We are located between 17 miles south of Ocala and 12 miles North of Leesburg. Each of those small towns has your restaurants.... ( BUT VERY INCOVIENIENT ) Please consider building one here SOON....

I sent my email. Also asked them to pick sites that are GOLF CART ACCESSABLE. Barb

Better yet, tell them to build on Hwy. 42 where this stuff is sorely needed.

Like Olive Garden, Carabba's is a chain of Italian restaurants and it's already in TV. Has anyone been there and didn't find the food exceptional and overall experience pleasant? If you haven't tried Carabba's, do yourself a favor and try it. And yes, forgive me for not following suit on this post. But I'd also like to see an Olive Garden and several more Dunkin Doughnuts while we're wishing.

Being that I currently live in western ny , just over the border from southern ontario, let me know when 'Tim Hortons' coffee comes to TV... Tim was an ex-Toronto Maple Leaf whose name on this coffee/donut/soup/sandwich chain is making his family rich! Coffee rivals Dunkin Donuts (which I drank for years living on LI)...

I am pretty sure that I read in the paper that both Red Lobster and Olive Garden are coming here. I don't think they will be golf cart accessable so should mention that to them.

I agree with JohnZ, There is a lot of room in front of the Publix on 42 for a Red Lobster and and Olive Garden. And it is golf cart accessible.

Spell Check complete - don't want to upset anyone.

I've contacted Legal Sea Foods, as they have 3 locations on the east coast of Florida and I know from correspondence with the CEO that they are considering new locations.
Anyone who has been to one can vouch for the excellent food, top quality service and consistency.

I AGREE, I ALWAYS LIKED THE OLIVE GARDEN. SEEMS LIKE A CLASS PLACE. HOPE WE GET ONE SOON.
