The guessing game has started in Tri-Cities! A mystery restaurant chain is in negotiations for signing a lease in the old PF Chang's building by the Columbia Center Mall.

The mystery business is keeping their identity quiet until the lease is finalized.

Tri-City residents already spoke out that they want a Chili’s Bar & Grill, a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, or a Cheescake Factory locally in past surveys.

The building has 6,500 square feet of space and one of the best locations in the area.

The new owner is said to be planning a complete remodel pushing the future open date to sometime in 2019, according to reports.

If the lease is signed, the new owner will be revealed by the end of November 2018.

I can't wait, I'm hungry!
