Buffalo Wild Wings developer Mike Jones says that his new Southtown St. Joseph restaurant is going to arrive on the scene considerably later than he had hoped for...but you should see activity on the site in the next few days. Jones’ project has been held up for weeks now by back-logged orders in the U.S. steel industry. His structural steel order has taken far longer than he anticipated and that has pushed everything back from his original intent to be open by September or October. Jones told me that we should see structural steel for the building any day now and his building will hopefully rise rapidly shortly thereafter. The LaPorte entrepreneur, who already owns and operates thirty Buffalo Wild Wings restau-rants in six states from Virginia to Alaska , recently opened contractor bids and assigned the general con-tracting job to Pearson Construction of Benton Harbor . Jones told me, “I would love to get it done this year...and if we have to work overtime to get it done we might have to do that,” however he is still at the mercy of all the pieces falling into place along the way. He had been hopeful to have the sports bar and restaurant ready to rock n’ roll in time for the collegiate football season knowing the rabid fans in the region for a number of teams. Jones acquired the former Dino’s Family Restaurant building site and demolished the building last month in preparation for the new construction at 2939 Niles Avenue in St. Joseph . His plans include a 5,000 square foot restaurant with seating capacity for 190 patrons. He will be hiring some 50 to 55 full and part-time employees for the restaurant once the building nears completion. Mike owns restaurants in his home state of Indiana as well as in Virginia, Illinois, Ohio , and one each in Coldwater, Michigan and Anchorage, Alaska . His Indiana properties include the Buffalo Wild Wings in La Porte, Michigan City and Portage . So... stay tuned as Jones and company ramp up the process big time in the next several weeks preparatory to ice cold beer and nice hot wings as soon as they can get the thing built. Lunch time in the Harbor has punched up the excitement level a couple of notches thanks to a confed-eration of foodies who know their business well and hope to impress you beyond compare, and do it without serious damage to the family budget, either. Your hot dog and slider fix has arrived on Main Street in down-town Benton Harbor. Harbor Dogs & Sliders officially opened for business on Tuesday, July 15 th , with a color-ful new logo and an incredible menu of options for the hungry lunch crowd. Located in the building that has variously housed Frankie’s Breakfast Club, the Harbortown Cafe, The All American Cafe, Bonnie’s Breakfast Nook, Bob’s Snappy Service and others, Harbor Dogs & Sliders brings an eclectic menu of hot dogs, sliders, salads, sides and more. The diner features extreme talent in the kitchen in the form of Chefs Anthony Orlando from The Ideal Place and Elton Mann from Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant . Together with former Harbortown Cafe Chef Kim Curley , they have hand crafted the menu. The great news out of this new powerhouse combo is that they all get to keep their current gigs while taking lunch in the Harbor to interesting new levels. Brianne Handy , who is Mann’s girlfriend and co-worker at Tabor Hill as a dinner server, is the counter clerk taking customer orders for submission to the kitchen crew.

Seven years ago, Wolverine Metal Stamping of St. Joseph expanded operations into Mexico . Now the company is expanding again...but this time much closer to home. Company officials appeared before the Stevensville Village Council recently to begin the process for creation of an industrial development dis-trict paving the way for a new plant on Lawrence Avenue which is expected to create up to 18 new jobs in the community. They are literally bursting at the seams at their current plant off of Maiden Lane . The company, which is headquartered at 3600 Tennis Court behind the South Shore Racquet Club in St. Joseph Charter Township , is in the process of purchasing the former AccuSpec facility in the 2600 block of Lawrence Volume 15, Ver. 30 Avenue, a couple of blocks away from the Village Hall. AccuSpec ceased operations there a couple of years ago. Wolverine was formed in 1957 largely as a suppli-er to the audio and electronics industry. The company expanded over the past 50 years to provide stamped metal components to the automotive, furniture, appli-ance, hardware, and computer industries. The company added robotic welding services in 1990 to address the needs of the anti-lock braking industry, and a year later added in-house assembly capacity in response to cus-tomer needs. Metal fabrication was added to the compa-ny’s growing portfolio of offerings in 1992 to meet the demand of customers with lower volume metal produc-tion requirements. This expansion into Stevensville will result in three full-time shifts of five or six employees each. They have requested creation of an industrial development district in the village which will require a public hearing next month. That sets the wheels in motion for industrial facilities tax exemption requests for the purchase of new equipment and renovation of the former AccuSpec factory to accommodate this new division. The company also has a division in North Carolina along with the operations established in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico in 2007. Wolverine enjoys a “Who’s Who” of industrial clients including Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Black & Decker, DeWalt Tools, Hewlett Packard, Bosch, Eaton, Dana Corporation, Bombardier , and others. The company’s capabilities extend far beyond stamping and metal fabricating into a unique mix of value-added services including assem-bly, custom kits, riveting, welding, bar-coding and specialized packaging.

While perusing my Facebook newsfeed recently, I came upon the launch of a new Kickstarter campaign by Jacob Wade Wells and his J Wade Productions for their planned development of a student documentary about World War II from the perspective of a teenager. Jacob is a 16 year old student at St. Joseph High School, and an accomplished feature film writer and director. He premiered his first movie, Lock Down, late last August at Celebration! Cinema in Benton Harbor. Now, he is crafting a film that will “embark on a journey back to the days of Normandy and other epic battles of WWII.” He is conducting live interviews and capturing stories from actual veterans who were there as teenagers themselves. As Jacob says in his Kickstarter pitch sheet, “This will help to explain what it was really like to be 17 or 18 in the war to end all wars.” Jacob tells prospective investors that the inherent risk for the project is “the average age of living vets is 90 years old.” He adds, “Many vets still alive wish let the memories fade, but we have found a few that are eager to share their stories and let the world know what it was really like.” He points out that excitement is larger than expected for the project and he looks forward to the finished project as much as the veterans themselves. J Wade Productions, headquartered in St. Joseph, has targeted a goal of $7,500.00 to fund the movie-making process and investors can sign on for as little as one dollar. The clock is ticking, and the campaign has two weeks left in which to succeed. The final film product is targeted for release in November of 2014. Jacob has been in a few films himself as an actor, has worked with Marc Forster on World War Z and has even been to the New York Film Academy. His first feature film, an action movie, was shot entirely in Berrien County with a cast of Michigan actors and debuted on the local screen last fall. The Lest We Forget re-enactments play a role in the film, and those veterans will be very proud of Mr. Jacob Wade Wells and his effort to “Brighten the Future” while “Illuminating the Past.” If you’d like to take a look at your investment opportunities and get in on the ground floor of this film, you can find the Kickstarter Campaign by clicking this link:https://www.kickstarter.Com/projects/44540883/a-teenagers-look-at-wwii<br /> <br /> That’s it for this week, folks. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you Saturday back here in MailMax or online 24/7 at www.MoodyontheMarket.com .<br /> <br /> Pat Moody<br /> Morning Radio Personality<br /> WSJM Radio<br /> moody@wsjm.com<br /> (269) 925-1111
