SHERMAN, Texas -- The City of Sherman made a big announcement on Thursday: Schulman's Movie Bowl Grille is officially coming to the south side.

The entertainment and dining complex will be located at the corner of U.S. 75 and FM 1417.

That apparently puts plans on hold for the same company to build a similar complex in Denison.

As the name suggests, Schulman's will include bowling, a restaurant, arcade games, and more for the whole family. The facility also promises to generate more than 150 jobs.

"Grayson County, the whole market area is just a great area," developer Mark Schulman said. "You have great education, they're growing, they're progressive."

The site plan includes retail stores, restaurants, and possibly a convention center in Phase II of the project.

"Who doesn't like bowling? Who doesn't like a good movie in a comfortable chair and being able to eat from your seat?" asked Sherman City Manager Robby Hefton. "We don't have a place like this in Sherman; I believe it's going to be a destination for Grayson County and the surrounding counties."

Schulman's Movie Bowl Grille in Sherman is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. "We believe the entire development is going to bring $25 to $35 million in taxable investment," Hefton said. "The sales taxes generated from the same area are going to be hundreds of thousands a year."

Just one month ago, the company announced a similar facility 11 miles to the north, at the corner of U.S. 75 and Crawford Street in Denison. In a Facebook post on Thursday, Schulman's said it will be "focusing on the retail portion of this [Denison] development first, with the entertainment to follow."

Schulman's already operates two other Movie Bowl Grilles in Corsicana and Bay City, Texas.
