There has been a steady decline of restaurants on the Square in Canyon. Luckily when one closes it makes it easier for another one to open. This is the case for a new Italian restaurant.

I saw it on Facebook over the weekend. The response seems great so far. Canyon not only needs a new restaurant. It seems like the idea of bringing Italian to the square is a win.

Canyon needs Italian in their lives

The place will be called Mickey's and the family that is opening it is on the way to moving to our great city here in the Texas Panhandle. They are picking up and moving from Arizona.

There have been many questions asking when they thought this new place would be open. Looks like an announcement will be coming in a few weeks. It also looks like 2022 is going to be a good time for all.

They are planning on the beginning of the new year! They are going to announce an official date December 1st!

So this is nothing but good news. I can tell that Canyon is looking forward to this:

Everything is coming up rosy in Canyon. The countdown is on for this new family to move to Canyon and bring with is a restaurant that will be near and dear to the hearts of Canyon.
