Shelby County medical device manufacturers are known for their innovation. But it took about three years of meetings before officially forming the Greater Memphis Medical Device Council this July.

“The industry was not used to coming together and sitting down,” said Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce president John Threadgill. “They’re competitors. And to get competitors in the same room to talk about their issues, there’s some reluctance. But the fact is, they’re all having the same issues. The cat’s out of the bag.”

4. Wells Joins Evans Petree as Associate -

14. What’s in Store for Restaurant Biz in 2012? -

New Year’s Eve! What a scary night! Not only because people have to stand around at midnight with a bunch of so-called friends and sing that dreary “Auld Lang Syne” and put each other’s eyes out with supersonically zooming champagne corks (see Memphis Grapevine for advice on avoiding this), but because this artificially imposed deadline for the ending of one year and the beginning of another sets the scene for trend-spotting galore.

15. McNeeley’s Project Green Fork Promotes Sustainability -

Project Green Fork and founder Margot McNeeley have made a significant impact on the Memphis community in only a few short years.

Since the program’s inception in 2008, PGF-certified restaurants have recycled more than 600,000 gallons of plastic, glass and aluminum; more than 300 tons of cardboard and paper; and 79,000 gallons of food waste.

16. Mission at Vito’s To Go: Quality Food Quickly -

The interior of Vito’s To Go resembles a submarine in its claustrophobic crowding of narrow kitchen, prep table, drive-through accommodation, bread-making area, storage and office. Six years in the planning, the restaurant, which features coffee, breakfast, sandwiches, salads and pizzas only on a drive-through, delivery or call-in/pick-up basis, is the creation of Chris Conner, whose extensive experience in construction, engineering and the local restaurant business goes back to the mid-1980s.

According to a study commissioned in 2008 by Vegetarian Times, 3.2 percent of Americans – about 7.3 million people – follow a vegetarian-based diet. About 1 million of those people are vegan, meaning that they avoid eating not only animals but animal products. Another 10 percent, about 22.8 million, said that they “largely follow a vegetarian-inclined diet.”

20. Homegrown Chef Takes Helm at Chez Philippe -

Chez Philippe has a new chef, Jason Dallas, and the shadow of Jose Gutierrez no longer looms over The Peabody’s opulent flagship restaurant.

21. Gone Cold -

School children welcomed Jack Frost on Wednesday afternoon and the three to five inches of snow he brought with him, but for business owners, the snow that caused hazardous road conditions and closures across the city also caused dollar signs to melt like icicles in the sun.

29. Unsung Heroes -

It’s often said that Memphis takes its musical talent for granted.

The economy has brought new commercial construction to a standstill, but the current financial climate is no match for the natural disasters that force a different type of project to move ahead.
