One way to measure a city's growth is outside businesses and companies making the decision to take up roots there. Another, more obvious one, is new businesses. In 2012, Marshall can check both of those boxes. A few examples: Instead of the Bistro closing its doors and becoming a huge empty building on a busy intersection, it has been transformed to Caldo Italian Kitchen, which should prosper at that choice location. The El Rancho Mexican restaurant will soon be welcoming customers into the old Chalet building on East College Drive. The former Starbucks building has also been dusted off and now has a tenant. Kruse Motors has broken ground on a new building. The Open Door Health Center now has a weekly presence in town.
