Two years ago this November, the team behind Shu Shop, a Japanese casual ramen bar, took the stage (and a share of the prize money) at THE BIG PITCH presented by PNC. Last week, they officially opened to much fanfare in the heart of downtown’s Theatre District on 3rd Avenue, directly across from the Alabama Theatre. Join us in celebrating their success and their contribution to a rapidly expanding culinary landscape in Birmingham. For more information, visit the Shu Shop online by clicking here!
And remember to save the date for the 2017 BIG PITCH on November 18th. If you’re interested in competing and discovering how REV Birmingham can help take a business idea from concept to creation, visit our BIZ GROWTH web page to find out more.
This fall, the REV team is doing some new REV things, with a demonstration project designed to prove and improve downtown Birmingham’s market for more retail.
I believe that Birmingham is still missing something important—something that inspires people to experience downtown on foot, that can tell the story of our city and its cultures.
