Community hopes recent festival will encourage growth

October 9, 2012 by  

Business owners and community leaders in the Wesley Heights area of Charlotte hope the recent Taste of FreeMore Festival will help the area attract more business.

The festival was held on Saturday, October 6 around Freedom Street and Morehead Drive. Activities commenced at 4:00 pm and included food provided by area restaurants and music. Businesses and community leaders in the area helped to put it together in an effort to introduce individuals in the area to the west side of Charlotte and hopefully bring in new businesses, more patrons, and even more residents.

Community leaders on the west side of Charlotte say they have seen the area grow in the last few years, but hope to spur more growth in future years with events such as this, so that revitalization of the area can continue. Julianne McCollum, who helped organize the festival, stated:

“I think is going to be a great springboard to show how much positive energy is in this area and spur further revitalization with new businesses coming in.”

If business continues to grow at a steady rate in Wesley Heights, area print companies can probably expect to see extra business as well. As more and more businesses move into the area, printing companies are more likely to be called upon to provide business card printing, flyer printing, and a variety of other print services in relation to advertisements and business documents.

The area has seen significant growth in the past few years but would like to continue this. Some of the more recent restaurants that have moved into the area include The Burger Company, Pinky’s, Picante, and Savor.
