August 18, 2006—Viking Grill’s Impact in Greenwood

There is a great article in this month’s Inc. Magazine on how Fred Carl, founder of Viking Grill, has revitalized the downtown of his hometown, Greenwood, Mississippi, a once proud town. I was there a year ago and did three days of blogs on my experiences. I hope that you will go back to read them and read the article in Inc. Here is the start of the first blog.

Who would ever guess that the upscale kitchen range revolution would be birthed in a rural Mississippi town? And by a lowly home builder? And that Greenwood, MS once the cotton capital of the world would become a hotbed for entrepreneurial activity? More on the entrepreneurial hotbed in the next couple of days…..
