Welcome to my monthly newsletter about all things James Island!
New island restaurants are here and focused on easy and healthy food, just in time for summer! Welcome - Beech - now OPEN at 1739 Maybank Highway (shopping center at the intersection of Folly & Maybank). Beech was started by two brothers with a passion for food which is both nutritious and fast. They now have 3 locations in Charleston and focus on acai, poke and juices. You can get food to go, delivered or catered. Check out the menu for delicious looking fresh pressed juices, smoothies, acai bowls, and poke bowls (raw fish and rice bowls originally from Hawaii). Kids options also available.
Also, the owners of Huriyali downtown plan to open a second location at 2016 Wappoo Drive, down the street from the Terrace Theatre. Huriyali means “green vibrance” in Hindu. Owners Tom McFall and Ruchi Mistry have been delighting downtown diners to delicious sandwiches, salads and smoothies since 2015. They hope to open this location by early fall. Name still TBD.

James Islander Spotlight
James Island resident Jonathan Bohn, Founder of Soko Ventures, believes in people who own great businesses. They change people’s lives, their communities, and the world. Building the value, not just the revenue, of your company gives you a large advantage in life. When you build a company that will run without you day-to-day, you will sleep well at night knowing you could sell, hold, or pass your legacy to the next generation. Yet, so many entrepreneurs are caught in the owner’s trap, working IN their business instead of ON it. Through coaching programs and online learning platforms, Soko Ventures helps people focus on growing their business. Building and growing your business should not be agonizing. It should be an exciting journey!
