Christiansburg’s Red Lobster seafood restaurant on Peppers Ferry Road recently underwent remodeling changes and expanded its menu.
The redesign is part of a major national program where Red Lobster’s around the country will be remodeled by 2015, according to a spokeswoman for the company. The Red Lobster in Roanoke was remodeled with the many of the same changes this summer.
The redesign included new features to make the chain restaurant resemble New England, expanded seating for large parties and more energy-saving upgrades. Several new seafood items were also added to the menu as well as some non-fish dishes.
“We’re committed to bringing the Christiansburg community an updated dining experience with an atmosphere inspired by the seaside,” said Howard Hohman, Red Lobster’s Senior Vice President of Operations, said in a news release.
In other New River Valley news, Blacksburg’s Crown Carpet Cleaning expanded into Roanoke Valley
Family-owned Crown Carpet Cleaning has operated out of its Blacksburg shop for the past year providing services to commercial and residential properties throughout the New River Valley.
Owner Ed Elliot said they have expanded services to Roanoke, Salem, Vinton and Daleville this month because business has been doing so well.
“The demand for low moisture carpet cleaning has been very strong. Unlike traditional hot water extraction methods (so-called steam cleaning), we utilize a process that uses about 80 percent less water, and generally dries in one hour,” Elliot said in an email.
In 2014, the business will also begin offering dry-vapor steam cleaning for hardwood floors, tile and grout, he said. They won’t open any new storefronts yet, but will be adding more people.
