A Cook Out restaurant will be opening in Troy.

Mayor Jason Reeves said Tuesday the restaurant company has plans to open a location on U.S. 231 in Troy at the site of the former Trojan Zone. Demolition of the existing building has been underway this week.

“I really don’t have a lot of details I can share, but it’s always exciting to see Troy getting new businesses,” Reeves said. “We’re excited for them.”
