2017 OCTOBER FEATURE

Indigos 01We have a new owner over at Indigo’s Coastal Shanty. Judah Lynch has been working in restaurants for decades and has an extensive history with a love for culinary arts. Judah, already passionate about downtown was more than happy to participate with the Mainstreet Alliance.

Most people are familiar with Kate Buchannan, the original owner of the restaurant. However, it seems that Indigo’s is still in great hands. “Kate wanted to sell,” Judah explained during our interview. “We carried a similar philosophy on how we treat people, employees, and food.” Of course, Judah loved the restaurant for the same reasons Kate intended. Judah describes Indigos as “a casual, colorful, coastal environment that you don’t find anywhere else. It provides fun and interesting food with no boundaries and a great meld of flavor.”

Judah’s passion for food began when he was very young. He grew up in a military family which meant a lot of traveling. His grandmother was also a nutritionist which only furthered his interest. If you’re worried that the menu will change with the owner, have no fear. “The menu stays the same,” Judah stated, assuring that the creativity comes in the specials.

Downtown Feature: Dot & Army

The Downtown Brunswick Mainstreet Alliance is kicking off their first business feature with Dot & Army! Although, Dot and Army had owned the store space back in May of 2016, they are celebrating their storefront Anniversary this month, operating as a double business.  

This isn’t the full history of Dot & Army. They have actually been a business for 8 years.

Prior to selling cloth napkins and other fabric goods, Jennifer, owner of Dot & Army, had actually been in California. She held a close relationship with her grandparents – Dot and Army (who are the namesakes to our downtown store).  However, when she would make her family visits to Georgia, she struggled to find a Georgia made souvenir.

Inspired by her mother who taught her how to sew, Dot & Army began their online shop. Eventually, the family decided to move all their production goods into a store front downtown nearly a year ago. Since then, Dot & Army has branched out. Removing layers of carpet and revealing the original hardwood floors, their store took on a new look as Jennifer managed to create a store that sold all Georgia made products, including her famous napkins.

As the back of her store is filled with walls of threat, boxes of fabric, and several sewing machines, all with a single stitching function, she often makes quality napkins and other dining wear fabrics to restaurants, such as the one pictured going to a seafood restaurant in Chicago.

We’re very excited to celebrate this unique business that has made its home in the heart of Downtown Brunswick. We can only hope for many years of continued success as they pioneer the efforts of local goods in our community.
