2175 Whitten Road
Memphis, TN 38133
Loan Amount: $2 Million

Loan Date: Oct. 31, 2008
Maturity Date: Nov. 1, 2009
Borrower: FRS Industries Inc.
Lender: BancorpSouth Bank

Details: FRS Industries Inc., the company that owns and operates FRS Powersports, has filed a $2 million construction loan to build an 18,000-square-foot motorcycle and ATV shop at 2175 Whitten Road, just north of the Interstate 40 and Whitten Road interchange.

The company broke ground last week, and construction is expected to take six to eight months, said store manager Brantley Gaither, son of FRS Industries owner Harold Gaither. The shop will replace the company’s existing location at 6695 Fletcher Creek Cove, which FRS Powersports has been leasing. Its existing shop is just 8,000 square feet, enabling the company to more than double in space with the move.

“We’ve increased in business and we wanted to have a new, state-of-the-art facility for our customers,” said Brantley Gaither.

FRS Powersports is an authorized dealer of Victory Motorcycles and Can-Am ATVs. Gaither said sales of motorcycles in particular have increased as fuel costs rose.

“Motorcycle business has stayed strong during the economy,” Gaither said. “Gas prices give people the excuse to have something fun.”

Renaissance Group is the architect of record and Chris Woods Construction Co. is the general contractor for the project. FRS Powersports earlier this year filed a permit application with the city-county Department of Construction Code Enforcement to build the store.
