Waddell & Reed Financial Advisors have moved into Mt. Juliet and are looking to help Wilson County residents meet their goals, and write a better story for their lives. 

“We’ve had a warm reception,” said Brandon Edwards of the move into Mt. Juliet. He said people have just stopped in to say hi, and that never happened  in their previous location in Nashville. He said they felt like they were casting a big net there, and were already doing a lot of work in Wilson County, and some of the group lived in the area. 

“We wanted Wilson County to be more of our focus,” said Edwards. 

Waddell & Reed includes four people working to help meet your goals at all times. In addition to Edwards, there is Martin Porter, David Gerkin and Allison Bivens. 

“At all times, they have people working for their best interest,” said Bivens. 

 Gerkin said that they help people in many financial areas, and work to fit what the person’s goals into the plan. 

“Success means different things to different people,” said Gerkin. 

Porter said that they are more than just an advisor, Waddell & Reed are about creating relationships to help clients through the many financial stages of their lives. 

“People will be clients for 20 years,” said Porter. 

Waddell & Reed have not only been doing business in Wilson County for years, they have been a part of the community. They have been members of the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce, and hold many social gatherings each year. They are title sponsors at the Toast of Tennessee, participate in the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce Charity Golf Tournament, and do gatherings like at ICE for Opryland. 

Waddell & Reed would like to invite the community to just stop in and say hello at their new location in the Robinson Crossing building, 1400 N. Mt. Juliet Road. You can give them a call at (615)810-8185 or check them out on the web at

Serving meals just like grandma used to make, you’ll feel right at home when you visit Granny’s Kitchen.  

“I don’t look at any customer as a customer, I look at them with friendship and like they’re family.”

Started by Mt. Juliet native Teisha Cartwright and named for her grandmother, Charlene Robertson, Granny’s Kitchen wants you to feel right at home the moment you enter. “I’ve always wanted to do a restaurant,” Cartwright says.

Since opening in December, Granny’s Kitchen has been offering fresh, quality meals in Mt. Juliet.  From roast chicken and dressing, beef tips and gravy, pork chops, and meatloaf, to cobblers, puddings, pies, and cakes everything is homemade from scratch. “It’s recipes I learned from growing up with her,” Cartwright says. And all for under ten dollars.

Located on Lebanon Road next to Stylemasters, Granny’s Kitchen is more reminiscent of a cozy home than your typical diner. “I just wanted it to feel like home,” Cartwright says.  From the moment you walk in the door you’re hit with the warm aroma of southern cooking.  You’re then free to pick your seating in a living room that has been filled with quaint tables and chairs.  Across from the living room is the open kitchen, which looks more like a family’s Thanksgiving than the back of a restaurant. It’s loaded with meals steaming in pots and deserts chilling in the refrigerator.

The restaurant is entirely family operated with Cartwright’s father, Eric, preparing food and her daughter, Erin, waiting on tables.

Granny’s Kitchen is at 11381 Lebanon Road and is open from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, and 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.  They are closed on Sunday.  For more information you can reach them at (615)758-0383.
