It's that time of the month again! We are excited to announce August's LoLo gifts! There are so many unique, wonderful, local businesses in Middle Tennessee and it's time to celebrate them this month!
LoLo, Locals Supporting Locals, is an amazing program for your Parks REALTOR® to give to you! Each month, a completely free, new gift comes to your cell phone for you to enjoy. The gifts are selected by county and are only for local businesses, no nationwide chains!
LoLo helps remind us to shop local and support our friends and neighbors! Here are August's gifts to you!
Porter Road Butcher offers pasture-raised meat from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania. Buzzwords like "cage-free" and "organic" just don’t cut it for them. Porter Road Butcher vets their partners against the highest possible standards and regularly visits their farms to make sure the animals are raised outside, fed vegetarian feed, and given proper attention at every stage. Not only are their meats hand-cut at their own facility but they also dry age all of their beef for a minimum of 14 days, which creates tenderness and an intense flavor that will completely change how you think about beef.
LOLO recipients will enjoy "Local Love" from Porter Road Butcher!
Southerner's Coffee is a family-owned coffee shop on wheels located in historic downtown Franklin. Unlike the traditional coffee shop, their unique mobile coffee truck offers a convenient drive-thru or walk-up option when ordering. Their menu includes everything from decadent specialty espresso drinks to classic coffee-lover favorites like lattes and cappuccinos. Southerner's also offers fruit smoothies, kids drinks, and plant-based, elevation drinks.

Sweet Bakes was born in 2014 around a dining room table and a piece of old-fashioned crumb cake. It had long been a dream of owner Shell Snyder to own her own bakery. After having her first daughter and leaving an amazing company of 9 years, she was looking for a way to bring in some extra income while staying at home. As she tirelessly searched for "work from home" jobs online, she decided to take a break and bake up her favorite crumb cake. Back at the computer with a warm piece in hand, she heard a still small voice say... "Do this." Shell hopes that with every donut she and her team share and every interaction that they have, they will reflect the love of Christ.
LOLO recipients will enjoy a “Coffee and a Donut" from Sweet Bakes Donuts and Cakes!
Panther Creek Brews are brewers that have been dedicated to fighting the ongoing war against boring beer here in Middle Tennessee since 2004! In 2015, they made it official and established Panther Creek Brews LLC. Help them battle mediocrity by supporting your local craft brewers and fellow homebrewers. Drink, make, and demand better beer!
LOLO recipients will enjoy a "Draft Beer" from Panther Creek Brews!
Iddy & Oscar's is a give-back boutique whose core mission is to give back to the community and to the world. They strive to carry products that you, their customers, can feel good about purchasing. They love items that are hand-made by artisans, items that have all the details, items that have a story, or that give back in addition to what we are already giving. When Iddy & Oscar's opened in 2015, their sole purpose was to send Kenyan street orphans to school with the proceeds of the store. Today they celebrate having 25 students in schools across the country of Kenya and giving back to their local TN community as well.
LOLO recipients will enjoy a "Candle or Bread Mix" from Iddy & Oscar’s!
We hope you join us this year in our resolution to support our local businesses and business owners!
