Concord Produce to close soon


The town of Farragut has lost another of its pre-charter businesses as Concord Produce closes its doors.

Harold Sutton, owner of the 23-year-old business, said, “It’s the last of the breed that’s been here for years. … They were still having school in the old [Farragut High] schoolhouse,” which was located adjacent to the now Farragut Pointe shopping center at the corner of Concord Road and Kingston Pike.


He added that when he took over the existing building that housed Concord Produce it was a hot dog stand, prior to that it was a Dairy Queen.

Sutton, who moved from Sevier County to Farragut when the business opened, said he hoped that the transaction would be complete by year’s end.

Prompted by the proposed development by Michael Brady, Inc., the roughly 4-acre plot of land on which Concord Produce lies at the intersection of Loudoun Road and Kingston Pike will be the future home of the Farragut Retail Building and the Farragut Office Building. The Commission heard in workshop plans to develop the parcels and agreed to bring to a vote in public hearing:

• A resubdivision of a portion of Parcel 1.07, Tax Map 143HA, and Parcels 2, 5 & 6, Tax Map 143HA, 11124 to 11128 Kingston Pike, fronting on Kingston Pike, Loudoun and Roane Roads, Zoned C-1 and B-1, 4.2 acres.

• A site plan for Farragut Retail Building, 11124 Kingston Pike, part of Parcels 1.07 & 2, Tax Map 143HA, located on the southwest corner of Kingston Pike and Loudoun Road, Zoned C-1.

• A site plan for Farragut Office Building, 109 Loudoun Road, part of Parcels 2, 5 & 6, Tax Map 143HA, located on the northwest corner of Loudoun Road and Roane Drive, Zoned C-1 and B-1.

In other workshop business, the commission agreed to move to vote on:

• A rezoning request by Ammy Yeh for Parcel 13, Tax Map 151, 400 N. Watt Road, located north or and adjacent to Orchid Grove subdivision, 3.89 Acres, from Agriculture to C-1.
