April Business News

One of the biggest news stories of the month was the announcement of SmartSpace bringing 370 jobs to Donelson!  Automated Health Systems is a new company coming to Nashville and Covance brings 120 jobs from downtown relocated to Donelson.

A great new business started by neighbor Christopher Hodges is Heirloom Archaeology, LLC.  Christopher helps return lost artifacts that reconnects generations in families.  It’s as fascinating business and the recent stories of his success are found on his website and Facebook page.

You may have noticed construction occurring over at The Crossings next door to CareSpot.  That will be Yats, a Cajun Creole restaurant chain from Indianapolis that looks delicious.  They’ll have an open deck area as well on the side of the building.  They should be open this summer.  I spoke with the owner and they’re excited to be part of the community.

At my campaign kick-off last September, I mentioned that Ryman Hospitality Properties was working towards the Grand Ole Opry House being added to the National Register of Historic Places.  Normally this designation is reserved for properties that are 50-years or older, but the Grand Ole Opry House at 41-years is being added early because of its significant contributions to culture and arts.  The Grand Ole Opry celebrates 90-years this year and has a Birthday Bash Weekend scheduled for October 2-3.
