Speak Up: Sweet treats and other dining wishes for Delaware, Round 2


Signs are pointing to a Crumbl Cookies franchise opening in Dover. The company’s founders believe they have the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. What food franchises would you like to see make their appearance in our area?

  • About 19 specialty restaurants in the historic district downtown would be wonderful. All the tourists downtown have hardly anywhere to eat on the weekends. Really sad, especially for Sunday day-trippers. No chains would be preferable, but anything would be wonderful, as tourists love local food and higher-end establishments. — Taylor Collins
  • Texas Roadhouse. Olive Garden Italian Kitchen. — Linda White Lane
  • Culver’s. — Eric Reno
  • Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. — Becky West
  • We need a sweetFrog in Smyrna. — Jennifer Rosica Bratton
  • Whataburger! — Janet Peck
  • Roads that are fixed and bridges to open. That would be “sweet.” — Bryan Wilson
  • None! Franchises don’t help communities to prosper. Small businesses do! — Karen Justison Rhodes
  • P.F. Chang’s! — Cheryl Weniger
