Farragut Market open


A Georgia entrepreneur re-opened a Farragut convenience store this past Tuesday, July 20.

Nick Patel opened Farragut Market at 11104 Kingston Pike, the site of the former Farragut Quick Stop and a Weigel’s.

“We should be a convenience store, specializing in beer and groceries you don’t normally find in a convenience store,” Patel said.

Patel said he’d completely remodeled the building, which has been vacant since February.


“We’ve basically gutted the store and remodeled everything, from top to bottom and installed a second walk-in beer cooler.

“We’ve basically redone the entire store,” he said.

This is Patel’s first convenience store in Tennessee; he owns two BP gas stations and a few hotels in Georgia.

“This is a good location. [The store] is right on the main road of Kingston Pike and it seems to have a high traffic area.

“I think it’ll do pretty well here,” Patel said.

According to Patel, the convenience mart will sell coffee.

“We’ve brought cappuccino and iced coffee, slushies, pretty much everything you would see in a deli. But without the deli,” Patel said with a laugh.
