Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Quick-casual BBQ chain, Bar-B-Cutie, releases today the projected opening of its newest store at 2037 North Mt. Juliet Road in downtown Mt. Juliet. 

Bar-B-Cutie, which began serving Nashville in 1950, is excited to share Mt. Juliet’s legacy of tradition, family values and unity. 

“Because Bar-B-Cutie has the same core values as the City of Mt. Juliet, I feel we are a perfect fit to the community,” comments Brett McFarland, COO Bar-B-Cutie Franchise Systems.

In an effort to celebrate and authenticate Bar-B-Cutie’s deep roots, Jim Anderson, Mt. Juliet’s owner, and Ronnie McFarland, CEO Bar-B-Cutie Franchise Systems, have added a few special touches to this new location. 

In this location, you’ll sit in “family grown” tables and chairs. The tables and chairs have been hand-made by the same family that cut and grew the wood. 

This location will bring back a menu item, the Original Treat Sandwich (now called the “Cutie Club”), that has not been served since the original Bar-B-Cutie on Murfreesboro Road relocated to Nolensville Road in 1979. Another uniqueoffering this location will bare is iced-down bottled Coca-Cola.

The Mt. Juliet Bar-B-Cutie will truly be the best of all worlds serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

“We are combining the traditional BBQ favorites such as hickory-smoked barbecue, baby back ribs & half chicken (boasting the memo “cooked and served daily until we run out”) with new “customer requested” favorites such as fried pickles, BBQ Pork Nachos and a Burger Experience,” says Ronnie McFarland. 

Breakfast at Bar-B-Cutie will also center on traditional favorites that are cooked to order such as sweet potato pancakes, eggs cooked just the way you like them and omelets with all the stuffings (tomatoes, onions, black & green olives, mushrooms, jalapenos) at no additional charge.

This is the first Bar-B-Cutie store for owner/operator, Jim Anderson. 

Mr. Anderson commented, “We’re very excited about bringing the Bar-B-Cutie experience to downtown Mt. Juliet next Wednesday, May 3, 2013! We are also thrilled about being a good neighbor to our community. I believe our menu offers a little something for everyone and our goal is to serve up great food at a fair price with smiling faces.”

WB&T gives $8,000 to Second Harvest through penny drive PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, April 23, 2013

After taking part in an area-wide penny drive that concluded in January, Wilson Bank & Trust recently presented Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee with a contribution of just over $8,000.

The total bank donation included money from jars that were displayed at all WB&T branches; change collected by employees and customers on their own; and a $2,500 donation match offered by bank management.  Between early November and the end of January, each of Wilson Bank’s 25 full-service offices in Wilson, DeKalb, Davidson, Rutherford, Smith, Sumner and Trousdale counties collected change and provided collection cans for individuals to take home and return.

As a whole, the change drive coordinated by Ms. Cheap, WB&T and other partners raised more than $47,000 for Second Harvest to help the hungry in Middle Tennessee.

“Many people in our community continue to struggle to put food on the table,” said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest.  “Creative partnerships like the Penny Drive help Second Harvest and our partner agencies provide hope and sustenance to those in need and we are grateful for all of our partners in our continued fight against hunger.”

The change drive was one of several special charitable programs undertaken at Wilson Bank & Trust in celebration of the bank’s 25th anniversary last year. Others included ‘Operation Giveback,’ a giving program through which employees donated items for community help centers, and ‘Christmas On Us,’ a radio-based campaign that involved WB&T providing gift cards to help families with their Christmas shopping.
