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.
At REV, we also love seeing the added vibrancy on the street as patrons enjoy outdoor dining in our beautiful city. As indoor dining reopens, cities across the country are realizing that ending expanded outdoor dining could mean leaving money on the table.
Although the Greyhound Bus Terminal was renovated in the ’70s, many original elements of the building remained and have now been become historic highlights in the present-day adaptive reuse project. Join us on a photo tour of the historic space!
