Sweet P’s Uptown Corner to offer week of fun specials for grand opening

Sweet P’s Uptown Corner will host a week of themed specials from Oct. 19-24 to celebrate the grand opening of the new location in Fountain City.

“We’re so excited to open the first full-service Sweet P’s concept in North Knoxville,” said Chris Ford, owner of Sweet P’s Barbeque. “We’ve had a great initial response, and it’s time to properly celebrate with a full week of fun specials, entertainment and discounts for our community.”

The grand opening week will feature activities ranging from trivia to an outdoor pig roast. A portion of proceeds on Wednesday, Oct. 20, will be donated to Shannondale Elementary School.

“Each day is a supersized version of the types of events, specials and fun that you can expect from Uptown Corner going forward – and of course the delicious food and drinks,” Ford said. “We hope we’ll become your favorite gathering spot!”
