Uncle Bud’s has opened a restaurant in Cool Springs, marking the company’s sixth location.
The company that operates the down home eateries also has locations in Nolensville, Smyrna, Franklin, Donelson and Murfreesboro. Located at 401B Cool Springs Blvd. near Aspen Grove, the newest Uncle Bud's offers both a traditional menu — including catfish, southern fried chicken and hushpuppies — along with lighter options such as lemon pepper mahi and grilled or boiled shrimp.
“We’re really excited to bring Uncle Bud’s to Cool Springs,” Craig Dever, co-owner of Uncle Bud’s, said in a release. “The team has worked really hard to come up with a menu that is affordable and offers enough choices to accommodate the whole family. We’re famous for our catfish, the more health-conscious tend to love our grilled chicken and fish options, and we can’t keep the kids away from the free ice cream with purchase of a kid’s meal.”
The new location seats 96, offers an outdoor patio (pictured here) and features a “whimsical décor,” according to the release.
Florida-based European Wax Center will open its third Nashville-area location later this month in the Thoroughbred Village shopping center at Cool Springs Boulevard and Mallory Lane. The franchise is being run by Betsy Wigington (pictured), whose team is offering various free services the week of the March 17 before formally opening for business a week later. European Wax Center opened its first Middle Tennessee store in Green Hills almost two years ago.
Vanderbilt Health System CEO Wright Pinson spoke this week to members of the newly merged Williamson County Chamber of Commerce. His talk covered a lot of high-level policy ground and the strategic options for hospital players. He also discussed how the VUMC system plans to tackle the brave new world of health care post reform.
Then he switched gears a bit and filled in the crowd on his team's plans — announced in the fall of 2010 — to consolidate many of its Williamson County providers in one setting on the east side of Interstate 65. This is the first time we've seen the rendering below, which shows the $82 million complex from the east side as it will face Carothers Parkway.
