- Marco’s Pizza among businesses o coming coming to new Volunteer Village outparcel
BJs Hot Chicken, Marco’s Pizza and Black Press Coffee will be part of a new outparcel building under construction that is part of the redevelopment of a Hendersonville commercial center.
The building is part of Volunteer Village just off West Main Street at the intersection of Walton Ferry Road on one side and Old Shackle Island Road on the other.
The new building is just under 5,000 square feet and fully-leased, said Will Tyner of Commercial Realty Services and Revival Development. CRS and Revival are jointly redeveloping Volunteer Village.
Construction on the outparcel building is expected to finish in late summer with tenants to open late fall, ”Tyner said.
It will be the second BJs Hot Chicken location with another already open in Nashville on Murfreesboro Pike. Two other restaurants called Flamies on Gallatin Pike in Nashville and Franklin, Kentucky have the same concept, according to Alberto Forero who is involved with different partnerships for the businesses.
BJs Hot chicken will take about 1,500 square feet and seat around 30 in Hendersonville.
Black Press Coffee is relocating their store from nearby on Walton Ferry and will include a drive-thru, Tyner said.
Exterior improvements and some interior renovations have already been completed for two existing Volunteer Village buildings that have Jersey Mike’s, HealthMart Pharmacy and Autism in Motion among multiple tenants.
A new Take 5 Oil Change built on the property opened in 2021.
Redevelopment at Volunteer Village coincides with the realignment of an awkward intersection. Old Shackle Island on one side of West Main and Walton Ferry on the other don’t line up. The goal of the project being managed by the Tennessee Department of Transportation is to align the intersection.
Engineering and right-of-way acquisition have gone forward. However, the right-of-way still needs to be acquired from CSX Railroad, which has slowed progress according to Hendersonville Mayor Jamie Clary, who has estimated construction a year or more away.
