“They haven’t signed anything yet,” said Jason Crawford, regarding the addition of a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Canyon County. “It’s close and they are definitely interested.”
According to Crawford – the city of Santa Clarita’s economic development manager – there are several locations they are looking at. One location is rumored to be the old Blockbuster’s Video store near the intersection of Soledad Canyon Road and White’s Canyon.
Crawford said businesses take into account demographics and market saturation when considering where to locate. That makes Canyon Country desirable.

Crawford said sometimes restaurants choose to open based upon past relationships. Westfield Mall brokers had a history with Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que restaurant which opened last month and with Wokcano Restaurant & Lounge. Both are located at the Westfield Town Center Mall.

Still, The Plaza at Golden Valley has many empty retail pads that have not been filled. Crawford says that’s because businesses are waiting for residential properties to be built in the area before they commit to opening.
