What is happening on the business scene in Sooke and area

The summer may be slow but businesses in Sooke are heating up. There are changes and there are good things happening.

 

Wild Mountain Food and Drink has been nominated as one of Canada’s top 10 new restaurants in enRoute magazine contest.

“The only thing better than being nominated, is sharing this honour with our friends Jesse McCleery and Leanne Lalonde at pilgrimme on Galiano and with Dara Young and Dave Gunawan at Grapes & Soda in Vancouver.  Slow Food Canada is well represented on the West Coast!

Sooke residents and patrons of Wild Mountain can cast a vote for the restaurant.

“Vote for all of us at: http://eatandvote.com,” said Brooke Fader on Facebook.

 

Route 14, a restaurant with a pub-style atmosphere with a small tiered menu will take over the spot recently vacated by London Fish & Chips and previously the Edge on Sooke Road.

Owner Stew Jeppesen said he wants to create a friendly neighbourhood-style eatery with a farm to table mentality sourcing local products as much as possible. Route 14 is expected to open in mid-September.

 

La Petite Boutique has changed owners. Kristen Lindell has sold the business to new Sooke resident Caroline Severson. Severson will be working with her daughter Meagan O’Donnell.

 

Barb’s Barber Shop located in the Cedar Grove Mall is celebrating 30 years in business.

 

And of course all of the businesses along Sooke Road where the construction is taking place are open, although you may not be able to park in front of some at the moment, just look for directions. The flaggers will do a good job of getting you where you need to go.
