2022 is going to be a great year, and we deserve it after the last few years we have had. There have been some great new businesses and restaurants open this year in the Lansing area, even with the food shortages and the need for new employees.

There are a few new restaurants opening soon in the Lansing area and my daughter will be thrilled because one of them is Olive Garden. Been her favorite for years, so she will be happy when she comes to visit.

Here is the scoop, Delta Crossings off Saginaw Highway in Delta Township has really come a long way in just a few years says fox47news.com. The two new restaurants that are opening are Texas Roadhouse and Olive Garden, and BJ's Wholesale is also coming to that shopping center.

T.J. Maxx, Sierra, Bob’s Discount Furniture, and Hobby Lobby all opened in September.

Just like my daughter, I too enjoy Olive Garden. I love those breadsticks and their salad, yum. They should be ready to open their doors in the shopping center in late summer or early fall. Honestly, that's what I'm most excited about.

Also, look for a medical and assisted living facility and other national retailers who will also be coming to Delta Crossings. Bring on 2022 and let's keep growing in the Lansing area.
