Name franchises in Freehold

So the national hotel chains have rediscovered the Freehold area. Where have they been? The Press reported today that the Freehold Gardens has been sold and will be refurbished and become a Radisson. Back in the '80s, it was a Sheraton. The same new owner plans to build a hotel on Route 9 that will bring a Hampton Inn to the region. We must be hitting the big time.

This leads to a pet peeve: There's plenty of construction going on, but for what? The Freehold Raceway Mall expansion, a large cleared area across the way, the steel frame of something near Best Buy in Manalapan. You can't help but notice them, but they leave you wondering what's going in there. Each town should require a sign at any construction site listing the prospective tenants. It's good advertising for the business and the town.
