As a news source based on truth, we are sorry to tell you this is in fact NOT true. However, it’s not an outright lie either beings today is the proverbial ‘April Fool’s Day.’
However, when this was posted on local Flathead County social media we all had to do a double and even triple take.
Yes, Hutton Ranch is a very up-and-coming area that IF this were true then it would be an excellent location for the coveted “Olive Garden” that Flathead County residents have been drooling over and waiting for for what seems like an eternity.
The real question is will Kalispell and (Flathead County) ever get an Olive Garden? 100,000 people in a vicinity seem to be the standard number for most restaurants before they will inhabit an area. And because Flathead County is now probably close to 120,000 residents one would THINK it’d be time for the Italian restaurant to make its move.
That however is not the case and yes this is a sign of an Olive Garden going up SOMEWHERE else and alas not in our beloved Flathead County.
Maybe later friends. The dream was great while it lasted.
