Advantage Carolinas
We have the opportunity and the responsibility to exhibit a NEW Advantage Carolinas plan for businesses seeking the best location near a logistical center with great distribution capacities. That plan can be even more successful if developed for the entire Carolinas region—one that is inclusive and integrates assets with manufacturing facilities in addition to grain, livestock and raw materials—and fully utilizes the region’s assets in a truly integrated fashion for the benefit and prosperity of all.

Telling Your Story
“If you do the math, WTVI celebrates 50 years of service to this region in 2015. And that really is what public television is all about…it’s about service and commitment to a region,” says Amy Burkett, WTVI’s general manager and host of the “Carolina Impact” program. Proud of their new tagline, “We tell your stories,” she describes the station’s last 16 months as pivotal.

Palate Pleasing Palm
Knowing customers by name and what they like to eat and drink—it’s all part of the culture of The Palm, a family-owned business started in 1926 by two Italian immigrants, extending today from coast to coast and abroad. When Charlotte’s General Manager Joey Profeta greets you at The Palm, he isn’t just welcoming you into his business, he’s welcoming you into his family.

Beefed-Up Off-Road Bumpers and More
“Right now, bumpers are the driving force, they’re what we’re synonymous with,” says Greg Higgs, founder and owner of Fab Fours. “However, our line has expanded to include peripheral steel accessories. Basically anything that you can bolt to the outside of a vehicle to change the look and function, we’ve now hit all of those elements.”

Cleaning Up Town
“Working through our network of service partners, we help folks that outsource their cleaning and maintenance needs,” explains Kenneth Ayers, president of City Wide Maintenance of Charlotte. “Anything that makes a building and property look better, we can do.” Both trained engineers, Kenneth and his father Sam have enjoyed working together for 15 years now.

Significant Sales
A well-respected global brand and market comeback contribute to success in opening a Charlotte office, but Judy Green, chief executive of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, maintains, “It comes down to listening to what people want, learning to serve the needs of our customer, and giving back to the community we serve—and to always exceed our customer’s expectations.”
