Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen has officially opened a location in Brooksville.

The restaurant is known for its homemade meals and is located at 12280 Cortez Boulevard.

The Hernando County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the restaurant - complete with a "croissant toast" in honor of today being National Croissant Day. Cheddar’s is known for its fluffy, flaky, made-from-scratch croissants that are drizzled with house-made honey butter.

According to the chamber, the restaurant opening created 180 jobs for the community.
