Frankie Randazz’s plans for the family business in Lumberton include a 5-acre lot that will house a sports bar with a miniature golf course.
LUMBERTON, Texas – A population boom, made up mostly of families, has hit Hardin County.
This boom made entrepreneurs take notice and build family businesses in the area.
Frankie Randazzo, owner of Madison’s in Beaumont, says Lumberton is the perfect place to expand.
“There’s definitely a need in that town for a family restaurant, or a destination for people to do something, see some live music,” Randazzo said.
With the increase in the number of businesses opening in Lumberton, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sandra Womack says it’s an investment in the city.
“It’s amazing to see companies that believe in this community and want to come and be a part of it,” Womack said.
Lumberton has no property taxes within the city limits, so Womack says the business boom will be a big benefit to the city.
“It’s supported solely by sales tax, so the more businesses, the more people that shop locally, the more the city is able to do,” Womack said.
Randazzo revealed his new plans for the family business in Lumberton, which includes a 5-acre parcel that will house a sports bar with a miniature golf course.
“We are excited to bring a family-style restaurant, a large dining room, a children’s playground, an 18-hole miniature golf course and some other surprises we are working on,” he said.
In 2021, Lumberton opened 37 new jobs, according to the Beaumont Business Journal. There are 20 so far in 2022.
