Gigi's Cupcakes has revamped its store in The Crossings shopping center in Spring Hill, a move that is highlighted by the addition of a test kitchen for new products. The location also will serve as the training headquarters for workers at nearly 100 Gigi’s stores around the country.
The Spring Hill store will offer new menu items such as breakfast quiches, muffins and an ice cream line featuring three proprietary flavors that work cupcake flavors into the ice cream.
"I'm so thrilled about our redesigned location in Spring Hill," said Gigi Butler, company founder. "I know the residents of Spring Hill are really excited to have Gigi's Cupcakes to help celebrate all of their special occasions and we are excited to have such an ideal location for our employee training and test kitchen."
Franklin Synergy Bank has recruited Tiffany Martin to its team in Berry Farms as a vice president and commercial banker. Martin joins Franklin Synergy from Capital Bank, where she had been a branch manager for almost two years. Before that, she also ran a Bank of America branch.
“Tiffany has a great background in banking,” said Chairman and CEO Richard Herrington. “Our Berry Farms team is serving a community experiencing fast growth and Tiffany was just the right fit to serve that segment of our market.”
Franklin Synergy opened its office in Berry Farms, located off Interstate 65 at Goose Creek Bypass, in the fall of 2013. The company runs 11 branches in Williamson and Rutherford counties.
Officials with car rental giant Enterprise Holdings say they’re enjoying the benefits of Nashville’s tourism and travel boom. The company’s three brands — Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car — are putting up double-digit growth this year at Nashville International Airport, and plans call for Enterprise to open several more area locations to go with the 40-plus they now run.
One of those will come with a twist: This fall, Enterprise will add the Exotic Car Collection at its offices on Mallory Station in Cool Springs. The operation, which will employ a handful of full- and part-time people, will market high-end brands such as Lamborghini, Bentley, Ferrari and more. It will be just the 23rd Exotic Car Collection location in the country and only the fifth in the South, joining spots in Atlanta, Miami and Naples, Florida.
Tractor Supply executives have signed a five-year agreement to put the retailer's name on the new equestrian arena being built at Franklin's Harlinsdale Farm. The venue will open its doors in September and plans to host competitions and arena polo matches as well as various forms of riding lessons.
Working with the City's Parks department, Friends of Franklin Parks broke ground in February on the arena project, and has raised nearly all of the funds necessary to cover the cost of the five-acre facility that includes the arena, a concession stand, public restrooms and the restoration of a 24-stall barn adjacent to the arena site.
