Ballantyne Area Food for Thought: Something New
Friday, January 29, 2016

Submitted by Pariss Coleman

It’s hard not to be impressed by the variety of lunch options in the Ballantyne area. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, sushi, food trucks, fine dining, Indian or Peruvian, BCP has it all!

Driving around the Ballantyne area while you are hungry will make you forget about the lunch you packed. There are several options and it is hard to choose! I decided to compile my list and will start with four. I picked selections from different categories and researched what I’m interested in trying. Cheers to leaving my lunchbox home for something new!

American: Burger 21

Who doesn’t love a good burger? Burger 21 is conveniently located in Ballantyne Village, and there’s an option to get a half and half order of fries - regular and sweet potato. Burger 21, you got me. I look forward to meeting you, and your fries. 

Italian/Pasta: Lorenzo’s Pizzeria

After reviewing the website and menu options online, I think I’m going to leave Lorenzo’s full and happy. I have no idea what I want to try. I can't decide right now. However, the mouthwatering pictures of the pizza already have me thinking about which toppings I want when I get there...

Greek: Kabob Grill

I love Greek dishes, especially falafels. I’m excited to visit Kabob Grill in StoneCrest. The lunch specials on the menu look appetizing, and as a part-time vegetarian (I’ll get there one day), I think I may go with the vegetarian combo. 

Mexican: Cantina 1511

I’ve heard great things about Cantina and any time tacos, chips and dip are in the picture, I’m interested. You can never go wrong with a quesadilla in my book, but I think I’d like to step aside from my usual preference and try the Enchiladas de Pollo or a Chimichanga.

Decisions, decisions.

I'm also looking forward to using my BCP Card in the Ballantyne area! Click here to find out how you can save with current BCP Card discounts. 

Check back in a couple of weeks to see how it goes! Bon Appétit!

Ballantyne Briefings: No Guts, No Gain
Wednesday, January 27, 2016

The first Ballantyne Briefings of 2016 was held January 26 at Aloft Charlotte Ballantyne. Business owners and professionals enjoyed mingling and sales training from sales guru Jim Dunn. Dunn, President of Dunn Enterprises/Sandler Training, presented "No Guts, No Gain: The Art of Closing More Deals" to a packed room.

Dunn's briefing was full of valuable advice, such as avoid inauthentic communication, display passion for what you do, employ a process that builds trust, and be assertive yet nurturing with your approach. In addition to the great people and topic, everyone enjoyed delicious BBQ from Midwood Smokehouse in Ballantyne. Bissell Companies is the series sponsor.

The second quarter Ballantyne Briefing will be on Tuesday, April 5. Greg Gentner, COO of rFactr, will cover social media for business. Stay tuned for more details on Ballantyne Briefings' Facebook page.
