The dining options in Chambers County have grown a little longer and a little bit sweeter in the process. A new Steak ‘n Shake located off of Interstate 85 in Valley is now open. The new local dining option is already a hit among local residents.
The Steak ‘n Shake located at 491 Fob James Drive in Valley has been in development for the past several months. On Monday it celebrated its grand opening as cars lined the drive thru area and hungry patrons packed the doors of the new eatery to get a taste of what new options the Indianapolis, IN based fast food retailer would be introducing to the local market.
Those in attendance seemed pleased with the new food choices and the magnificent level of shakes offered. Staff members seemed happy and enthused to serve patrons as they entered the establishment. Prior to the opening of the Chambers County Steak ‘n Shake the nearest location was in Opelika.
As if Steak ‘n Shake was not a sweet enough addition to the local market another sweet frozen treat eatery has plans to open a Chambers County location. Dairy Queen is planning to renovate an existing location in Valley and be open by the Fall bringing with it 20-25 jobs to the local area.
