If Panguitch built it, would they come?

In general, most town and cities that are at the gateway to a National Park benefit a lot.

Not Panguitch, Utah, that sits at the entrance to Bryce Canyon. The town looks on a downhill path and seems to have nothing to offer to the visitors coming to visit the nearby Park or willing to venture into Escalante National Monument.

All around, lodging and especially restaurants seem terrible. What would it take to get things changed? A couple of good eateries plus a decent hotel and a few shops. Who would dare building and starting all that? Big and tough question... Would business activity coalesce around it?

Who will ever know until someone takes the first step...
