New Businesses Have New Approach To Downtown Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Recently several Salisbury businesses have closed their doors for good. In these tough economic times, running a successful business can be difficult. But some new ventures are starting up in Downtown Salisbury with a new game plan.

"They need to play on the people who live downtown the people that work downtown and cater their business to towards those specific people," Brad Gillis of Sperry Van Ness Real Estate tells us.

Main Roots Coffee is doing just that, offering live music, even starting up a delivery service for downtown employees. They opened their doors 2 weeks ago, and so far business has been booming.

"One of the biggest things that hasn't been done is just quality and consistency with being here when you say you're going to be open and having good products to serve," owner Nathan Johnston tells us.

Just recently, Aqua Italian Restaurant and Catering closed their doors for good. That same building has been home to a number of failed business ventures, but now a new owner is hoping to change that. Jeremy Norton, the General Manager of Roadie Joe's is using the space to put in a new sports bar.

"The fact that we have four bars within walking distance downtown, we can advertise that and I feel like we can really pull a lot of people to the downtown area," he tells us.

Norton says that Tuesday, February 19th, there will be a hearing on whether or not they can get a liquor license. If all goes to plan, he says they plan to open on March 1st.
