IHOP and At Home will make their way to the city of Mt. Juliet in 2018. In a city newsletter, City Manager Kenny Martin announced the business will open locations in Mt. Juliet sometime this year.
IHOP, International House of Pancakes, is a multinational pancake house and diner-style table service restaurant chain that specializes in breakfast foods. As of 2015, there are 1,650 locations of the restaurant, the current closest locations being in Hermitage and Antioch.
At Home, the “Home Decor Superstore,” offers a variety of furniture and home decor in different styles to best fit each individual customer. According to the company’s website, At Home offers the largest assortment of home decor at the lowest prices in the industry, for both inside and outside the home. They offer different trends and design to help customers “feel right at home.”
IHOP and At Home join a growing list of businesses in Mt. Juliet. 2017 brought many new restaurants and shops, including Rockie Williams, Burger Republic, Starbucks, Krystal, Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce and many more.
While it is still the first week of the new year, many more business seem to be choosing Mt. Juliet has a great place to begin, or continue growing, their companies.
Hobby Lobby will be opening in the building that used to house Gander Mountain, on Belinda Parkway, and Jason’s Deli will open a new location beside it. Nothing Bundt Cakes will open on North Mt. Juliet Road, where Ace Hardware used to be.
“In order to maintain this wonderful trend [of new business], we must do all we can to support all of our local businesses,” said Martin. “Not only does this show the current business that we care, but it also shows any potential new businesses that we indeed support our local businesses on every level.”
Martin also said there will be new city projects this year, including two new traffic signals at Highway 70 and Park Glen and Belinda Parkway and Providence Trail. He also would like to see that start, and completion, of the new city greenway along West Division Street and the widening of the bridge at Interstate 40 and Mt. Juliet Road.
“I wish to thank all of the many businesses and business owners that have invested in and supported our great community,” said Martin. ” The services and products you provide are a big part of what makes our community so wonderful, and for that we are most thankful and blessed.”
