Outback Steakhouse in Conway will be moving to a new location.

The store is currently located at 2110 Sanders Road near Tractor Supply Co., La Quinta Inn & Suites and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott.

Outback is looking to move to 955 East Oak St. next to Chipotle Mexican Grill.

"We think it will be a better location," manager Josh Stapleton said.

Stapleton said construction for the new location is set to begin in March with a target completion date set in September.

The Australian-themed chain recently filed an application for the transfer of a private club permit with the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division of the State of Arkansas.

The application was filed Feb. 14 with the criteria of the undersigned being a resident of Arkansas; of good moral character; he has never been convicted of a felony or other crime involving moral turpitude; that no license to sell alcoholic beverages by the undersigned has been revoked within five years and that the undersigned has never been convicted of violating the laws of this state or any other state, relative to the sale of controlled beverages.

Because the steakhouse filed a transfer, the current location will be open for new business in the future.
