Leading Business of the Month – The Carolina Opry


Carolina Opry

 

A chamber member since 1986, The Carolina Opry started the same year by Calvin Gilmore as a 1,000-seat theater in Surfside Beach. When shows sold out steadily a second show, The Dixie Jubilee, was added in North Myrtle Beach. The second show soon sold out nightly, too, prompting Gilmore to construct a 2,200-seat theater in 1993 which is still used today.

The Carolina Opry has garnered a variety of accolades through the years from media outlets such as USA Today, The New York Post, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety Magazine among others. It also was awarded the South Carolina Governor’s Cup – the state’s highest tourism award.

Five shows, including a seasonal production “The Christmas Show of the South,” run nightly except most Sundays at The Carolina Opry. “TCO” is the theater’s signature production featuring two-hours of high-energy music, comedy and dance. “Time Warp” will take you back in time to celebrate the music of the 60s, 70s and 80s. “Thunder and Light” is a dance, laser and magic show staring the hip-hop clogging group All That! “LIGHT” is a 45-minute laser light show series set to different music including the Beatles, Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd.

The theater also holds additional special events such as performances by Wynonna and the Big Noise and The Charles Daniels Band in March.

Leading Business of the Month – Firehouse Subs

Firehouse Subs
Not every deli order gives you the chance to help local police and fire departments.

Unless you’re dining at Firehouse Subs where donations are collected for the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

The eatery on 38th Avenue in Myrtle Beach was named Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce’s November Leading Business of the Month sponsored by South State Bank.

Steve and Deborah Duncan own three franchises in Myrtle Beach – one on 38th Avenue North, one at 5407 Dick Pond Road in Socastee and one in the Bi-Lo Shopping Center on U.S. 17 Business in Surfside Beach. Firehouse Subs – Myrtle Ridge also is a member owned by a separate franchisee.

Deborah Duncan said the 38th Avenue store was the couple’s first franchise purchased in 2002. Owning a franchise had been on their mind for about a year before a friend invited Deborah to “lunch at her favorite spot, which just so happened to be the local Firehouse Subs.”

Deborah Duncan said the delicious food plus the great team in place make owning the restaurant special.

The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation was established in 2005 by the restaurant’s co-founders. Donations are made by patrons who drop spare change into donation canisters at the register, round up purchases to the nearest dollar, donate $2 to receive a five-gallon pickle bucket or through donations online at FirehouseSubsFoundation.org.

Since the foundation launched, more than $23 million has been given to “hometown heroes” in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada. In South Carolina alone, the foundation has donated more than $1.1 million.

Funds from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation have helped departments locally. The Conway Police Department received $15,000 in November for the purchase of a K9 service dog and an automated external defibrillator.

In 2015, the Myrtle Beach Fire Department purchased a Bullex fire extinguisher system. In 2013, the North Myrtle Beach Fire Department purchases equipment including a carbon monoxide monitor and 250 smoke alarms.

The Surfside Beach Fire Department and Loris Volunteer Fire Department were awarded funds in 2013 and 2014, respectively, to buy thermal imaging cameras. Also in 2013, the Aynor Police Department received grant money to purchase Daisy, a Belgian Malinois who became the agency’s first K9 unit.LeadingBusinessMonthWeb
