February Business News
As you’ve noticed at the intersection of Lebanon Pike and Donelson Pike, our new CedarStone Bank Donelson Branch is coming along nicely. It will be a beautiful building and should be open by August! Check out the rendering below.
We have a new local small business coming to Donelson Plaza II! Homegrown Taproom & Marketplace is a neighborhood craft beer taproom and local food marketplace. I met owners Robin Davis and Jennifer Starks a couple years ago at a Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon and when they told me about their concept and business plan, I was excited for them to bring this to the heart of Donelson. It takes a lot of patience and persistence as a small business owner and I’m looking forward to our community supporting them like we do all our locally-owned businesses.
The Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce’s annual Mardi Gras event “Chambalaya” will be Saturday, February 21 down in Music Valley at the Nashville Palace Presented by Robert’s Western World and presented by Famous Dave’s. Tickets are $25 (or $35 at the door). Visit the website to get tickets.
