Enzo's Market Set To Open May 1 On The Southside; The Flying Squirrel To Launch Nearby

Thursday, April 4, 2013 - by Gail Perry

A target date for the opening of Enzo’s Market on Chattanooga’s Southside is scheduled for May 1. The store is in the process of being stocked now and hiring has started. The eagerly-anticipated business will be a grocery store with a deli/café component, said Sam Turner, one of the three owners who came to the meeting of the Chattanooga Beer/Wrecker Board Thursday morning. They applied for a license and received unanimous approval to sell carry-out beer from the grocery side as well as on-site consumption for the café side.

There will be seating for 64 inside and 60 on the patio. Co-owner Eric Cummings told the board that the outside space is walled off and elevated with a gate to separate it from the sidewalk for security reasons. All employees who deal with serving and all cashiers will be trained in the TIPs program to prevent the sales of beer to minors.

Enzo’s is located at 1501 Long St., which is one block west of Battle Academy.

Hours of operation will be from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will all be served from the café.  

Several blocks away from Enzo’s, The Flying Squirrel is planning to have a grand opening this spring.  This new business is described as a neighborhood bar that will have outside seating. It is located at 55 Johnson St., adjacent to The Crash Pad, a hostel that has the same owners. The bar will be open for dinner and late-night hours and will feature a Sunday brunch. It will be closed on Monday.

Smoke Mania at 4767 Highway 58, suite #101, was approved for a beer license contingent upon providing proof to the board that a land line telephone has been installed. Hours of operation for this business will be 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Both owner Ashok Thakur and the one additional employee will be trained through the TIPS program for procedures to prevent the sale of beer to underage customers.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Hay Fields Of July

Oh my goodness, July has just arrived and during my formative years, it was the most hated month of the year.

Now my grandfather, ... (click for more)
