Hendersonville business projects: Martin's Bar-B-Que, Raising … – Tennessean

Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint no longer plans to open a new location in the former Black-eyed Pea location in Hendersonville, but the brand is still actively looking to identify another location in the city.
A site plan on behalf of Martin’s Bar-B-Que to renovate the former Black-eyed Pea location at 164 E. Main St. was approved, according to the city. But a statement from Martin’s Bar-B-Que representatives included that the former Black-eye-Pea location “is no longer a fit for the brand.”
There is no timeline on when a new space in Hendersonville may be identified. Martin’s Bar-B-Que has 10 locations now open that include seven in Middle Tennessee.

Drakes Creek Holdings, connected to Southeastern Building Corporation and Southeastern Commercial Properties, is listed as the property owner of the former Black-eyed Pea location.
Several other Hendersonville commercial building projects are moving forward though many have experienced delays of some sort that have pushed back projected openings. They include:
Half Batch Brewing: Construction on a new building at 154 Bonita Parkway is ongoing and hopes are now to open a new 11,000 square foot building in May.
The building space and tap room will be three times larger than the present space at 393 E. Main St., just a few hundred feet away. The new location will also add an outdoor beer garden, Half-Batch Brewing owner and founder Nathan Newton said.
