Restaurant chains across the country have not only begun to reopen dining rooms, but they are opening new units as a sign of hope for the future.

Last week, BJ’s announced 85% of units were open for dining, and Bloomin’ announced that over 75% of stores are open. Meanwhile, companies like Panda ExpressDunkin’ and Taco Bell are hiring thousands of new workers.

And it seems brands can’t resist opening new units in addition to ones that had been closed due to COVID-19.

Most of the new locations listed here are opening in Texas, which was one of the first states to lift restrictions and open at reduced capacity on May 1. But Arizona, California, Illinois and Colorado are seeing new restaurant locations as well.
