Rumor has it: What chains are headed to Lubbock?

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

As the city of Lubbock grows, so does the number of restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. So which establishments are actually headed to the Hub City?

First on the list of fact or fiction is Dunkin' Donuts. The morning hotspot will be coming to Lubbock in 2014, with plans to build multiple locations in the next five years.

Reports also point to a Steak and Shake coming to Lubbock. The burger chain will be taking over the lot on Milwaukee right next to Starbucks.

Potbelly Sandwich Shop is scheduled to open up before the end of the year right near Texas Tech.

Alamo Draft House has already began construction off the West Loop. They're scheduled to open in 2014 as well.

Also off the West Loop, Costco plans to open up in mid November, followed by Cabella's in the lot next door in the Summer of 2014.

Rumors of HEB coming to Lubbock are half true. The grocery chain purchased property on 114th and Quaker, but they insist they have no plans to build.

Rumors about The Cheesecake Factory and PF Chang's have also been floating around. Both have yet to respond to our inquiries about a Hub City location.
