Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.--  The Southridge area of Kennewick continues to grow. Thursday, Z Place Salon and Spa broke ground on a new site.

The Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce, City of Kennewick, and other local businesses  welcomed Z Place to the area.  The salon's owners have been in business since 1978 and are excited to be expanding their services.  Vonda Smith, co-owner, says in addition to more styling and pedicure stations, "We'll have a room where we can accommodate bridal parties.  We'll have a full locker room with a nice jacuzzi tub area, 2 relaxation areas- one will be an outside patio with a beautiful view... over Canyon Lakes and the Blues."

Lori Mattson, President and CEO of the Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce, says the view and room to grow is the same reason other businesses chose Southridge.  Mattson says a number of restaurants and wineries are on the books to break ground over the next few years.  For example, she says, "A number of things such as a water park, the hospital expansion;  There's a burger place that's going to be built soon."
