TENNESSEE (October 20, 2010)—A lot of dirt is being moved at Sherrill Hill, the commercial development just east of Seven Oaks Drive, on Kingston Pike, and a new company is looking to build at the site.
An entity with ties to Michigan-based Gordon Food Service recently paid $1.75 million for a property at the site. In an email, a spokesman for the company said they are developing construction plans for a GFS Marketplace store which, according to the company, aims "to service the fill-in emergency needs of restaurants that typically receive weekly deliveries from a foodservice distributor like Gordon Food Service."
The company says GFS Marketplace stores are the primary supplier to many restaurant owners, caterers, churches, and non-profit organizations, and that the stores are also open to the public, with no membership fee.
