Industry Appreciation Luncheon
The Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Committee held their annual Industry Appreciation Day on September 17. This year, lunch was provided to employees of Shenandoah Mills, located just off the square at 145 South Cumberland Street.
Shenandoah Mills was founded by Dale Nunnery in 1990, when he purchased the facility from Martha White Foods. The company specializes in the production of many different dry food products – specifically batters and breaders. Their client list includes Cracker Barrel, Long John Silvers, Captain D’s, Hillshire Farms, Sara Lee, and more. Approximately 100 truckloads of dry mixes are shipped out per month, which totals about 50 million pounds of product per year. Still, in their 25 years of business, Shenandoah Mills has never shorted a single order.
Members of the Economic Development Committee got the opportunity to talk to the executive staff about the business and its history while other employees ate lunch from Honeybaked Ham Co. The Chamber would like to extend a huge thanks to First Freedom Bank for sponsoring the event.
