Larry's Pizza looks to Hot Springs, Little Rock; Jimmy John's set for capital city

Larry's Pizza looks to Hot Springs, Little Rock; Jimmy John's set for capital city

One location restaurant chain prepares to expand in Little Rock, while a national name is setting its sights on well-trafficked corner of the capital city, according to this week's Arkansas Business newspaper.

First, Larry's Pizza, the buffet-style pizza slinger that opened its first location in southwest Little Rock in 1992, is adding a second west Little Rock location, this one at 801 S. Bowman Road. The space once housed Dragon Palace Buffet at the Bowman Station project. The new Larry's will be about 7,500 square feet.

But the chain isn't stopping there.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Salvation Army Central Arkansas Area Command is celebrating the 73rd annual National Doughnut Day Friday, June 3 by partnering with Krispy Kreme to give away free doughnuts and raise awareness of The Salvation Army’s local food programs. The Army hopes to commemorate the traditions of National Doughnut Day and raise awareness of the continued need for Americans to support their neighbors in need.

“Last year, The Salvation Army Central Arkansas Area Command spent $91,874.50 feeding Little Rock's homeless and provided 7,153 food baskets to low-income families,” said Major James Taylor, area commander for Central Arkansas. “This increased demand has put a strain on our food pantries and shelter programs. We need food donations and volunteers to help stock and organize our food pantries each week.
