Prodigy Salon

5 years

Our Accessories (scarves, hats, jewelry) are our best selling items. They are trendy while at the same time very affordable. No matter a woman's age, shape, or size--accessories flatter everyone!

We know looking fashionable can be expensive, so we try to keep everything under $50. But, most everything is $40 and under. We offer sizes small to 3x as well.

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
The motivation for starting the business was our love for fashion and shopping. Who wouldn't want to work every day in an industry they love and have a passion for!?

In five years the vision for the business?
We hope to have all our clothing online, so that our customers can shop anywhere, anytime with us. Whether they are in their PJs on the couch, at work, or on the road they can shop with us!

What is unique about your business?
We only order 6 of each item that we get, so you won't see other women in town wearing the exact same thing you are!

Domino's Pizza

How long have you been in business?
I franchised in October 2008.

Location?
I have 3 locations here in Clarksville--1803 Madison Street, 2166 Wilma Rudolph Blvd, and 1709 Ft. Campbell Blvd.

Best selling item?
I would have to say other than pizza, our most popular item is oven baked sandwiches. We have a huge following of people that order them regularly.

What do you want women to know about your business?
What I want everyone to know about my business is that we are locally owned and operated. The dollars you spend in my business will stay in this community.

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
I have worked for Domino's Pizza for 15 years and counting. I originally started working for Domino's Pizza at the Wilma Rudolph location as CSR and have worked my way up to Franchisee. I could not have pictured my life without Domino's Pizza.

In five years the vision for the business?
I see no future growth in the next five years. I would like to focus all of my attention into the Clarksville market. My business still has a lot of room for improvement and I am working hard everyday to improve my stores.

What is unique about your business?
My business constantly changes. Every day is different. It requires a lot of time and effort everyday to make the business succeed. The hours are also very demanding. There is a lot of nights, weekends, and holidays spent in the restaurant.

Wicked Good Sandwiches

How long have you been in business?
A little over two months.

Location?
820 College St

Best selling item?
The Itailian Grinder and The Queen City Cheesesteak seem to be the favorites. The Peay Bread is popular as well.

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
This is something that my wife Patti and I have wanted to do for a long time. We really wanted to create the kind of place that we would want to go hang out with friends and have lunch. Although there are quite a few chain sandwich shops in the area, we thought there was room for something a little different, something a little better than fast food!

In five years the vision for the business?
It would truly be a blessing to still be doing this in 5 years. If we're fortunate enough to be doing so, it'd be great to become a staple amongst the community.

What is unique about your business?
Come see us and find out.

Found a great jewelry designer in Kansas and knew that nothing was like it in Clarksville. I built the business out of my house for 3 years and decided to take the step to brick and mortar.

I’ve been in business 5 ½ years!

We are located at 128 University Avenue close to Austin Peay State University!

Our best selling item is whatever the chicken casserole of the day is; people in the South need their comfort food! The Vegas Chicken Casserole is probably the favorite!

It’s a great place for women to meet for a business lunch, catch up with friends, or even meet with their husband for lunch.

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
After working with a friend at her tea room, I decided I wanted to try it out myself, the key being a downtown location. Downtown Clarksville has always been my favorite part of town.

In five years the vision for the business?
In 5 years I hope to still be hanging in there and possibly expanding with a meeting area and patio on the second floor.

What is unique about your business?
My business is unique because our food is homemade every day—nothing frozen. I like to think if you want something bad for you, we have it OR if you want something good for you, we’ve got that too! The décor is unique as well. We have over 250 vintage paint by numbers, a collection of velvet Elvis paintings in the ladies room, and an assortment of bad 1960s velvet paintings in the men’s room.

The Runners Hub

How long have you been in business?
We opened our doors officially March 3rd, 2012.

Location?
We moved from our Franklin Street location in December of 2014. We are now located at 2141 Wilma Rudolph, Suite I.

Best selling item?
With being a specialty running shoe store, shoes are obviously our best selling item but Brooks is our best selling brand. We have 9 brands to choose from but we have noticed that most runners coming into the store really like the feel and comfort that Brooks provides with their latest running shoes. We never push the customer into any type of brand we always base everything off of the runner and what feels best on their foot.

What do you want women to know about your business?
This is a store for every level of runner, you do not have to be a seasoned runner. We are here to help you get fitted properly so you can have a more enjoyable running experience and so Clarksville can continue to see it's running/fitness community grow and stay healthy.

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
Clarksville didn't have a place to go that caters to the runner, people often had to drive to Nashville to get fitted for shoes or to purchase basic nutritional items. We did not have retail backgrounds but we did enjoy running/fitness, being a Military family and having about 5 years until retirement we wanted to do something that we enjoyed and are passionate about so The Runners Hub was created.

In five years the vision for the business?
Besides the obvious vision of business doing well we want to be at the heart of Clarksville's fitness community, when people think about running and Clarksville we want the first thing that comes to mind to be The Runners Hub.

What is unique about your business?
I think the customer service that you receive from our business is second to none, we thrive off of working with individuals on a one on one basis and never rush anybody out of the store.

Business Culture in 3 words:
The Runners Hub.... When we were in the process of coming up with a name we wanted the name to reflect our future goals and being the Hub of Clarksville's running community is what we strive for.

Additional Info:
The Runners Hub is fully staffed with runners, we know the aches and pains that fitness oriented individuals are going through. We are here to help lessen some of those pains and pass our knowledge off to all of our local athletes.

Edward's Steakhouse

How long have you been in business?
It will be 4 years March 11th.

Location?
107 Franklin Street in the heart of Historic Downtown Clarksville

Best selling item?
The Edward's Duet. Simple--because it is the daily deal we have on our menu. It's perfect for couples to enjoy.

What do you want women to know about your business?
That we are the perfect place for dates with your husband or boyfriend OR if it's just a ladies night we cater to that as well. We have an incredible selection of wines and martinis. It's perfect for any occasion. Also that just because we are a steakhouse doesn't mean we don't have other options. We offer different styles of fish, salads, homemade pastas, and more!

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
To give Clarksville a dining experience that no one else offers. From the food, drinks, to the low lights and piano, we want the best for our customers to enjoy and continue coming back.

In five years the vision for the business?
Hopefully we will grow enough to expand into a larger building downtown. We want people driving by to try us out and see all that Clarksville has to offer. It would be great to expand to more than one location thinking even longer term.

What is unique about your business?
No one else in town offers the setting we have. The live piano on Friday and Saturday really sets us apart. Along with offering the best cuts of meat in town, that will never let you down.

Flower Lily

How long have you been in business?
We opened the beginning of August so this is our eighth month open now!

Location?
We are located at 1849 Madison Street suite E. Just up the road from Publix!

Best selling item?
Our best selling item is our clothing! We work so hard to bring fresh new styles to Clarksville. We make sure we carry lines that they can not find anywhere else in town. We also do not buy many of the same style in the same size. This helps our customers know what when they buy something at Flower Lily they can be confident in knowing that every child in Clarksville will be wearing the same thing.

What do you want women to know about your business?
We really want women to know what their children are welcomed at Flower Lily. We have all kinds of things in the store to occupy them from toys to a movie playing. One of the favorites we have found is the chalkboard that is built on the side of our counter.

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
We looked at what Clarksville need when we knew we wanted to open a new retail space. We found that there was something in town for all most everyone but nothing for the little people! We knew we had to put an end to that!

In five years the vision for the business?
We want to grow in all directions! Hopefully we will have many more stores with all kinds of new merchandise!

What is unique about your business?
Flower Lily is unique in the fact that everyone that works in our store genuinely loves comming to work every day!

Business Culture in 3 words:
Lively, innovative, and nurturing are the words that sums up Flower Lily.

Abbey's Yummies

How long have you been in business?
We have been in business since March 2012.

Location?
You can buy my cakepops at Kids-n-Play at 525 Alfred Thun Rd., Clarksville Downtown Market, or by going to the website http://www.abbeysyummies.com/ or calling me at (808) 227-9774 to place an order.

Best selling item?
Strangely there is no best selling product! I've been trying to gather this data and all five flavors come to a close tie each time!

What do you want women to know about your business?
Cakepops are far more delicious, appropriate, and tidy than your traditional cakes. They provide just the amount of cake that your children can eat without anyone over indulging, they have frosting infused into the cake which makes it taste more like a truffle, and they don't require a bunch of plates or a knife. They are mobile and perfect for any event!

What was the motivation behind starting your business?
My friends and husband. I made my first cakepops for my husband's birthday. All of our guests told me that I open a business for them because they were so delicious and beautiful.

In five years the vision for the business?
Storefront in Clarksville, TN and having my cakepops available in several shops across the city.

What is unique about your business?
This is a small veteran/woman owned business who believes in giving back to the community. I shop locally for all of my ingredients and hope to educate the community on the importance of shopping from small local businesses.

Delicious, honest, safe.
