MINT HILL, NC – The Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce held its first monthly luncheon since last February when the COVID-19 pandemic crippled the nation. In particular, our small businesses have felt the biggest impact from the pandemic since it began.

Our local businesses have suffered, but the vast majority have been able to survive and are hopefully well-positioned to rebound and continue to serve our community with goods and services we all need and enjoy.

With former luncheon location Jimmies Restaurant no longer in operation, The Chamber has moved half of its monthly member luncheons to the Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation.  Membership lunch gatherings will continue being held monthly from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm the third Tuesday of each month. Announcements will be communicated in advance by the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce.

“Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation will be catering the luncheons every other month, and that gives our members who are restaurants the ability to showcase their organization in the remaining months. This was important when considering locations available in the Mint Hill area. We have many valuable members that we want to be able to partner with for our member luncheons,” said Paige McKinney, MHCC Executive Director.
