Jersey Mike’s Subs will have a grand opening this month at 1254 N Canyon Creek Parkway.

Chick-fil-a is expanding their drive through to include two lanes the whole length of the current drive through. No word on how long this project will take but the drive through is still open.

Bank of America has broken ground between Chili’s and Olive Garden and is down the street from the new Mountain America Credit Union and America First Credit Union.

The United Way had plans to open a community garden next to the police station but it has been delayed until next Spring.  Follow United Way on social media for more information.

Boot Barn is under construction and attached to Hobby Lobby.  I don’t have any information about opening dates yet.

Slice-A-Pizza is opening a store at 82 N 100 W in Spanish Fork.  Besides regular pizza, they also have keto & crustless bowls, pizza pockets, pizza cones and so much more.  They hope to be open in November.

Chipotle was scheduled to open in September and had a few delays.  They are opening in October and I’ll post about their grand opening when I get more information.

Quick Quack broke ground on their new location across from Highway 6.  I’ll keep you updated as construction continues.

The Spanish Fork Farmers Market runs through October 29th each Saturday from 8am-1pm at 775 W Center Street.

The new Spanish Fork Library construction is coming along quickly.  They are planning on opening Spring 2023.  The current library will be closed for one month to transition the books over to the new location.  Stay tuned for more information!

In Springville, the Utah Food Bank is building a new facility south of Walmart and next to the freeway.  As I learn more about it, I will let you know.

In September’s Spanish Fork Happenings, I mentioned Swig is opening in the Walmart Neighborhood Market center.  It is actually Sodamix and not Swig. They are shooting for a March 2023 opening date.

JDawgs had a grand opening on Friday, September 30th at 461 E 1000 N in the Harbor Freight shopping center. Check out their social media for more information!

As far as real estate goes, it’s been up and down.  The Feds raised the federal fund rate 75 basis points last time they met and mortgage rates have been bouncing around ever since.  One minute a buyer qualifies and the next minute they don’t.  Many buyers and sellers are so tight as to what they can afford and one small thing changes (like interest rates, even just a little) and the whole deal falls apart.  While the hope is that mortgage rates settle down, the reality is that they haven’t.  Buyers are still buying and sellers are still selling but agents, lenders and clients all have to be on top of every change that happens in order to make the transaction go through.  More than ever, you need agents and lenders that are communicating often and working together to make your real estate goals happen. I am here to help you navigate this market so give me a call!
