Duncan Interurban will not affect Chickasha's

CHICKASHA — A new Interurban restaurant scheduled to open on July 1 in Duncan will not interfere with the construction of the Chickasha location.

Co-owner of the Duncan and future Chickasha location Zachary Grayson said the new restaurant will be in an already existing building on the grounds of a country club.

"There is demographically in each location enough support for each restaurant," Grayson said. "The owners of Interurban live in Norman, and they would not have let us build in Chickasha if they thought it would detract from their business, and we would not open a location in Duncan if we thought it would detract from Chickasha business."

Grayson said he is waiting for the local small business association to release funding to build in Chickasha, which he expects should be in the near future.

"First National Bank approved their portion and I expect construction to start in the next two or three weeks, but I have said that so many times at this point," Grayson said.

A story in the Duncan Banner claimed a location in Chickasha had already opened, but that information was misinterpreted according to Grayson.

"I don't know where that came from, but obviously there is no location in Chickasha yet," he said.

The Chickasha Interurban is slated to open sometime this fall.
