I enjoyed the opportunity to welcome our new and improved Raceway service station at their grand opening ribbon cutting recently. It’s a big improvement to the property and the staff were very friendly and wanted to the community to know they’re here to serve.
Homegrown Taproom & Marketplace had a week-long grand opening celebration and I am very thankful and proud of Robin Davis and Jennifer Starks who have worked tirelessly to make their business a success. They are off to an incredible start and the marketplace is in the works to open within a month or so. We had a great ribbon cutting from the Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce.
Dal Ellington, President of Maplecrest Neighborhood Association, is also quite an entrepreneur with his successful small business, Revived Vinyl He now has a new technology-oriented venture called Biometric Match, which uses brainwave responses to better match singles together. As Mr. Spock would say, “Fascinating”.
Ellendale’s recently had a grand opportunity to be part of Restaurant: Impossible Be sure to check out their new and improved restaurant and menu. The episode should air in November, so check out their website for the schedule.
