To recognize local investment in buildings, landscaping, and other improvements, the Bryan Development Foundation has created a monthly “Spotlight Award.”
November’s recipient is Tano’s Pizza for the refurbishment of their restaurant at 216 South Union Street.
Crystal and Tad Gerhart purchased the business in 2017 and in the past year have installed new roofing, siding, gutters, signs, windows, and an exterior door.
This updated look is complimented by the new asphalt work done in 2020. Future work includes updating the interior.
The Gerharts are thankful for the contractors who provided services including Gutterman from Edgerton, Wells & Sons Paving, JRB Excavation & Home Repair from Bryan, and True Aerial LLC.
The Gerhart family also did much of the work themselves and extend a big thank you to their family and friends that helped along the way.
The Bryan Development Foundation’s mission is to enrich the community by encouraging economic activity, preservation, and community pride.
The BDF presents the Spotlight Award to a resident, business, industry, or institution that has invested in new construction, preservation, restoration, or beautification efforts, in Bryan.
Spotlight Award recipients are recognized by the BDF with a plaque and through social media and local news outlets.
Plaques are provided by Image Pro Group. The community is encouraged to submit Spotlight Award Nominations at firstname.lastname@example.org.
