Economic Development Lunch & Learn


The Chamber’s Economic Development Committee hosted a Lunch & Learn featuring TN Commissioner of Economic Development Randy Boyd on Thursday, January 28 at the Lebanon Golf & Country Club.

Throughout the hourlong informative luncheon, Comm. Boyd discussed a variety of subjects ranging from how education impacts employment to broadband availability across the state. The issue of broadband connectivity has implications in a variety of areas, including education and employment. Currently, his office is conducting online surveys to assess the broadband availability throughout all ninety-five counties, with particular attention to rural areas. To access and participate in the survey, TN residents may visit

Thank you to all those in the community who attended the Lunch & Learn. This was the largest such event that the Lebanon Wilson Co. Chamber has seen to date.

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.
