I write extensively about the Olive Garden restaurant chain for NewsBreak. In recent months, most of my articles on the topic have detailed recent restaurant closures. This article, however, will be different as it details a new Olive Garden opening.

Firstly, per ScrapeHero.com’s most recently-updated location count: There are 906 Olive Garden restaurants in the United States as of May 10, 2023. The state with the most number of Olive Garden locations in the US is Texas, with 106 restaurants, which is about 12% of all Olive Garden restaurants in the US.

Now, the company has officially confirmed the approval of a new Olive Garden restaurant in Mission, Texas.

Let us explore further.

Olive Garden, 2023

According to a May 31st report from ValleyCentral.com, entitled “Olive Garden Location Coming to Mission,” construction will begin in short order on the titular Mission, Texas location.

As excerpted from the report: A new Olive Garden location is coming to Mission, the city’s Economic Development Corporation announced. The Board of Directors of the Mission EDC approved Wednesday to begin construction of an Olive Garden.

The report goes on to state: Mission EDC CEO Teclo Garcia said he was excited about the possibility of bringing a nationally 
recognized restaurant to Mission. “Olive Garden would be a true lynchpin for the continued development of our Anzalduas corridor, which runs from our international bridge to I-2,” Garcia said.


In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, inclusive of building progress and official word of milestone dates, I will share them here on NewsBreak.
