There May Soon Be a Food Court Strip Mall at the Grand Canyon

Imagine this scenario: You and your family arrive at the Grand Canyon to take in its utter splendor. To the left, you spot a lone eagle, searching for prey. To the right, you can't help but notice a group of cacti, stoically persevering year after year. And directly in front of you? The majestic beauty of a KFC/Pizza Hut hybrid restaurant.

That's the plan anyways. Developers are angling to prop a food-laden strip mall at America's greatest gorge, the Grand Canyon. The theory, as told by the developers, is that the variety of food options will encourage visitors to stay longer. Endless profit is not a motive here, folks. No.  The gentle, awed laughter of a child as he or she spends an elongated amount of time in the canyon, Sbarro slice in hand, is payment enough for these kind-hearted magnates.

It's not a done deal, however. The measure will be formally decided next year, when the Navajo Nation Council votes on it.
