Food City breaking ground on two new East Tennessee locations Monday


Food City is preparing to break ground in two new locations in East Tennessee on Monday.

The first location is coming to Knoxville at the intersection of Oak Ridge Highway and Schaad Road. A groundbreaking ceremony is set to kick off at 10:30 a.m. Monday.

The new Food City is part of a $45 million investment into the Northwest Knoxville shopping complex with the support of Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs and the County Commission.

Developers will contribute $1.5 million towards public improvements to roads, traffic and a utility extension in the area.

In Pigeon Forge, a groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday at the new Food City along Teaster Lane and Jake Thomas Boulevard.

We’ll keep you updated with both new locations and when they’re set to be completed.
