A Smoothie King restaurant is coming to Highway 12 across from the Middleton Court shopping complex.

Community development director Buddy Sanders said a demolition permit was issued, and the old house on the lot has been torn down in preparation for the new Smoothie King.

The owner and developer for the restaurant is Jason Roberts, and the engineer for the project is Pepper Wooten and Associates, LLC.

Sanders said the city hasn't received a building permit request, and construction on the building has not started yet.

"We have been working with Smoothie King for over a year," Sanders said.

Sanders said the opening date for the Smoothie King has not yet been determined.

The approximately 1,200-square-foot restaurant will feature a drive through window.

Smoothie King has over 800 locations world-wide, and it offers expertly blended smoothies made with real fruit and fruit juices, nuts or veggies, high-quality proteins, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and more.
