Jarrell Economic Development Corporation’s Board of Directors unanimously approved a Type B Business Retention and Expansion small business grant for $25,000 for local, home-grown food, live entertainment, event, and tourism venue, The Granary. As a result, The Granary will be able to use the grant for property improvements, including a large grain silo top back-lit sign with The Granary, Jarrell, Texas prominently displayed. The grant will also allow a permanent shade structure to be built as part of the property improvements to allow for more comfortable outdoor seating for area locals and tourists.
“This small business grant will allow The Granary to purchase a beautiful, professional, lighted sign, which will provide substantial visibility from Interstate 35, encouraging out-of-towners to stop and explore Jarrell.” Owners and partners, Scott and Misty Murrah and Lynn and Cari Springfield
The Granary brings all of your favorite things together at one location: good drinks, good food, and good people. The Bar and BBQ at The Granary offer visitors a medley of drinks and serve some of the best barbecue around.
“The Jarrell EDC is excited with the opportunity to help this local business promote the awesome vitality of Jarrell. Local businesses are what make this area special. We are pleased to help further cement this relationship and look forward to the glowing future of Jarrell.” Jarrell Economic Development Board President, Wayne Cavalier
