Well. I made it. These past two weeks have been, in a word, insane. I'm here to be honest with y'all, so I'm not going to sugar coat it. Opening a restaurant and an ice cream store in a span of fourteen days was utterly exhausting, and I'm not sure that I would recommend it. That being said, it was also exhilarating. With each opening, we learn just a little bit more so that we're prepared for the next.
Scout's Pub was one of the smoothest openings for Dad and I. I'm not sure that our General Manager Chris could say the same, but I think that means that we've hired some good people! The team has been absolutely amazing since Day One. The reception of the West Franklin community has been overwhelmingly warm and positive, and we are so grateful. Also, the Bison Burger is one of my new favorite things to eat in the world. Cue the pregnancy cravings and last minute drives for to go orders.
I am now a part owner of a business for the first time in my life. I want to tell you much much more about the opening of my first Hattie Jane's Creamery but for now, I just want to share some happy photos. Our ribbon cutting is this Wednesday, July 13th at 1:30pm so come by and see us at 16 Public Square in Columbia, TN!
