O'Charley's will open a restaurant in Danville in August.
Plans are to build in the Danville Manor Shopping Center in the parking lot between Dawahare's and Burger King.
"We think it's a great town," said Les Lockhart, vice-president of real estate development for O'Charley's.
The 190-seat restaurant will apply for a liquor license. The city's liquor-by-the-drink ordinance requires restaurants to seat 100 people and derive 70 percent of their revenue from food sales.
The 190-seat capacity is a smaller restaurant than O'Charley's usually builds. Most seat 275. Lockhart said that the smaller restaurant allows it to come into smaller towns like Danville.
O'Charley's will appear before Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning Commission at 9 a.m. on Dec. 15 to present a site plan.
