After organizing a series of successful cash mobs, Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett will begin hosting monthly "Lunch with the Mayor" events at locally-owned restaurants. The first "Lunch with the Mayor" will be held Friday, Aug. 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Harby's Pizza & Deli on Walker Boulevard in North Knoxville.
"The 'Knox Cash Mob' has been very popular and very successful, but it's been mostly geared toward locally-owned retail businesses. I think 'Lunch with the Mayor' will be a good way to take the cash mob concept to local restaurants, because they need our support, too," Mayor Burchett said. "The important thing about the cash mob, and now 'Lunch with the Mayor,' is getting people to start thinking about supporting locally-owned businesses."
The public is invited to join Mayor Burchett for lunch on Friday. The event is "Dutch treat."
