Dave & Buster’s is preparing to open on Cabela Drive next month, putting it at the vanguard of another phase of progress at the Village at Riverwatch shopping center.
“The ultimate restaurant and entertainment destination will open its fifth Georgia location at the Village at Riverwatch in Augusta, GA on June 27,” said the Dallas-based chain in a hiring release on May 11.
The new Augusta location of the sports bar and arcade boasts a 20,460 square foot building that will feature a 40-foot-high, high-definition television screens. The restaurant is offering some 170 positions ranging from bartenders and line cooks to game technicians and front desk hosts.
“We are looking for individuals who are passionate, goal-oriented and will provide the best experience for our guests,” said general manager George Dey in the press release.
Notice of the opening date for Dave & Buster’s in Augusta came about a month after the company announced its purchase of Main Event, a rival family entertainment and restaurant chain based in Plano, Texas, for $835 million.
Dave & Buster’s isn’t the only growing business headed toward the burgeoning shopping center off Riverwatch Parkway.
Women’s boutique My Story announced May 10 on social media that it would be opening its fourth location on Cabela Drive, next to Guitar Center. And yet another casual dining chain is set on being the music supply store’s neighbor.
Richmond County Planning and Zoning is currently reviewing civil construction plans for an Olive Garden location on a 1.99-acre parcel at 804 Cabela Dr., across from the new Dave & Buster’s building. The project was submitted to the county on May 13 by Brett Mashchak, site development manager at Darden Restaurants, which owns Olive Garden.
