Two electricians and a landscaper work on the Denny's restaurant taking shape on U.S. 31 near Three Mile Road. Jeremy Ballinger is moving from the Lansing area to become general manager at the Traverse City restaurant. He said he plans to open the doors to the public the evening of Oct. 16. He still is hiring. "Come in for an application," he said. Applications now are available during daytime hours at the restaurant, he said. The chain operates 20 other Denny's restaurants in Michigan, the nearest in Muskegon.
