In this month of Roanoke New Businesses, we're introducing two "sweet" new businesses, a weiner stand re-opens, biscuit & crabs are on the menu, and we have hand made soap to wash off with.
The Roanoke Development section in Roanoke Professionals was started for readers to welcome new businesses, read a little about them and see where they're located on the map. You never know if one of these new businesses will be by your neighborhood.
This list is just a few of the dozens of businesses that opened in July and not meant to be a complete list. The businesses below were chosen in the food, drink, wellness & things-to-do sectors of Roanoke.
Editor's Note: We try hard to be accurate in our reporting but please always call the establishment beforehand to confirm opening hours, offers and events.
