Business Is Growing in Nolensville – But What Do You Want To See?


The next wave of growth for Nolensville’s business community is on the way, and folks here should be pretty excited about what’s coming up in the next few months.

The Brentwood Home Page details some of the developments:

 Uncle Bud’s Catfish Restaurant at 7215 Nolensville Road plans to relocate to the Town Center next to Martin’s Bar-b-que in two weeks. Mama’s Java, located at 7177 Nolensville Road, will also find a bigger home in two weeks in the building across the street next to Dollar General. 

Subway, a nail salon as other businesses will occupy the building with Mama’s Java, Tisano said, adding that food is what Nolensville residents want to see more of in the growing town of close to 6,000 according to the 2010 Census.

In addition to this, there are new stores on the way to fill up more spaces in the revamped Town Center, and in the longer term there’s the prospect of a wine/liquor store in Nolensville, or even a Home Depot at some point.

What is perhaps most encouraging about all this is that there’s a mix of both national chains moving in here (an outside endorsement of our town’s potential) and local success stories like Mama’s Java, which continues to grow its footprint after starting out in a corner of the Feed Mill.

What’s Next for Nolensville?

Soft ice cream

So here’s my question to you, Dear Reader – what sort of businesses do you want to see come to our town?

Here are a few of the items on my wish list, but I’d be interested to get your thoughts:

  • A grocery store, ideally a Trader Joe’s. It’s different than a typical Kroger’s or Publix (both of which are just a few minutes up the road), but at the same time is affordable. This isn’t Whole Foods territory, at least not yet.
  • A family-friendly sports bar & grill. How nice would it be to get together with friends and neighbors at a place within a short drive or (dare I say it) walk?
  • A basic soft-serve ice cream place. With all the baseball, softball and football games over at Nolensville Park, families would flock to such a place afterward (and no, I’m not talking about overpriced frozen yogurt!).

So what’s on your Nolensville Wish List?

    I think a place with outdoor sitting would be great. Maybe a place we could watch Preds away game on a nice night outside.

      Believe me, I would love to have a place to hold OTF viewing parties right in Nolensville!
