Knoxville City Council members Lauren Rider and Andrew Roberto jumped on social media this week to boost lunch traffic at the Time Out Deli, 2012 N. Broadway.

“KUB crews are making essential water and wastewater infrastructure upgrades along Broadway between Oglewood and Bluff avenues in North Knoxville. The construction has impacted businesses along Broadway, and Pack the Place was a way to announce that our local businesses are open even during the construction and they need our community’s support. It was great to partner with my council colleague Lauren Rider in this effort,” said Roberto.

Joining them for lunch were neighbors, representatives from KUB, Mayor Indya Kincannon, county commissioner Courtney Durrett and District 5 council member Charlie Thomas.

“This lunch was modeled off lunches that council member (Gwen) McKenzie and I hosted in 2019 when construction on Hollywood was impacting businesses along Sutherland Avenue,” said Roberto.

Pack the Place ran from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 10.
