(WBIR- Knoxville) Several highly anticipated restaurant chains have opened up recently in Knoxville, or plan to open soon.

The Cheesecake Factory in West Town Mall has now set an opening date for June 25, according to representatives.

There's also a new Chick-fil-A under construction in Fountain City. A spokesperson says they're set to open in early August.

Also in Fountain City, We're Cookin' opened several weeks ago.

And there's a new Salsarita's near Cedar Bluff and Kingston Pike. The restaurant's grand opening attracted more than 100 people.

"Our expectations are really high about this location. We've got great visibility from Kingston Pike. There's certainly a lot of new development in this area," said Manager Jim Owenski.

Management at the new location says their opening didn't impact the sales at other Knoxville Salsarita's locations. That tells them that new people are trying their food, which could be a promising sign for other restaurants in Knoxville.
