August opening targeted for Germantown eatery project

Nashville-based Fresh Hospitality is targeting an August completion for its adaptive reuse project involving Germantown’s historic Peafowl Theatre Building.

The structure will house three eateries — Cochon Butcher, Octane Coffee and Juice Bar and Little Donkey — and the company’s offices and be called Germantown Market.

Matt Bodnar, Fresh Hospitality partner, said work is now underway to overhaul the interior. The company recently landed a permit, valued at $1.7 million, for the effort.

Brentwood-based Biscan Construction is serving as general contractor, with Nashville-based Gobbell Hays Partners enlisted to provide design work.

The building is located at the southeast corner of the Fourth Avenue North and Madison Street intersection. 

“We’re very excited to be getting started on the project and can’t wait to get Germantown Market open,” Bodnar (pictured) said.
