It’s Your Business: Nova’s Bakery

Nova’s Bakery, based in Charlotte, recently purchased the Dilworth Coffee House location at the Hoods Crossroads Shopping Center in Mint Hill.

Bringing their specialty breads, pastries and other baked goods to Mint Hill, this move marks only the most recent expansion for Nova’s, who opened a new location in Charlotte’s South End neighborhood last August.

Sladjana and Vlado Novakovic started Nova’s Bakery on South Boulevard in Charlotte in 1996, and after needing a larger production facility, moved to Central Avenue a few years later, where their headquarters are located today.

Just a few weeks ago, Nova’s purchased the location at Hoods Crossroads, after realizing that much of their weekend patronage consisted of customers commuting 20 to 30 minutes from the Matthews/ Mint Hill area, to get bread and other baked goods from Nova’s.

Dr. Mark Pustaver, of Pustaver Chiropractic in Matthews, has signed joined the Patriot Project, an initiative among chiropractors to give free treatment to veterans and active service personell free of charge, and to advocate for more access to and coverage of chiropractic care for military personnel.

Pustaver is currently the only North Carolina chiropractor involved in the project, which was started by Dr. Tim Novelli, a chiropractor in North Canton, Ohio.

The first goal of the project is to get chiropractic care covered by Tricare, the Department of Defense’s health care program, as well as to provide that care, get chiropractors at Forward Operating Bases overseas, and advocate for the acceptance of chiropractic care as necessary to veterans and active duty men and women.

The project began in early 2012, when a patient of Novelli’s called and told him of an “American hero” that needed his help. The hero was Staff Sergeant Dana Bowman, a U.S. Army Golden Knight, who came to Canton to visit family and friends, and had never had chiropractic care before visiting Novelli during that trip.

“To make a long story short, he had great results,” Novelli said.
