ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A new restaurant has plans of bringing nearly 100 jobs to East State Street.

Longhorn Steakhouse is now open just outside of American TV. The location is over 6,000 square feet and owners say they plan on becoming active in our community starting with the Salvation Army.
“Our food that's leftover at the end of the night that we haven't served... they pick up once a week so we've been partnering with them for all the food that we've been practicing with. They feed about 70-90 people three times a day so we're happy to give to them so they're able to help out,” said Longhorn Steakhouse managing partner, Paul Boyes.

Another fast food option will also be hitting East State Street very soon. According to its website, Chick-Fil-A is scheduled ot open its doors on January 23rd.
