Haywood Takeout delivers the goods
Haywood Takeout is offering a new food-delivery service from your favorite restaurant to your doorstep.
For a fee — ranging from $4.99 to $7.99, depending on location — patrons can order food from a list of participating restaurants and have it delivered to their residence or place of work. Currently, participating establishments include Kobe Express, Taste of New Orleans, Thai Spice, Fat Buddies, Haywood Smokehouse, New Happy Garden, Snappy’s Pizza, Kanini’s, Duvalls, Nick and Nate’s, Underwood’s, Nik’s Hotdog Shack and Bridgets Bistro; more options will be added as the service grows.
“We are huge on keeping it local here and are in hopes to see Haywood County grow any way we can. We feel that offering delivery to businesses, hotels, motels as well as B&B’s and other establishments like Frog Level and Bear Waters (breweries with a food menu of their own) will bring everyone more business,” said owner Beth Siren.
Orders may be placed on the business’s website, www.haywoodtakeout.com.
Harrah’s introduces The Pools
Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort has opened The Pools, a facility boasting both indoor and outdoor pools. The heated indoor pool, in its glass housing, offers swimming lanes for lap swimmers and is open year-round. The outdoor pool, also heated, has a zero-entry wading area and is surrounded by landscaping as well as Vegas-style cabanas, a walk-up bar with covered dining area and adjoining restrooms and showers.
The cabanas vary from 64 to 150 square feet and are available by reservation. They feature thickly-cushioned wicker furniture, TV, Wi-Fi, lighting, both fans and heaters, as well as privacy curtains. The bar offers wine and cocktails, as well as local beers. The pool-side dining menu includes wraps, sliders and desserts.
The Pools, an exclusive amenity for registered hotel guests, are adjacent to the recently opened fitness center and Mandala Spa.
Angel Medical Outpatient Center now open
A new medical complex has opened alongside Angel Medical Center in Franklin offering a suite of outpatient services.
Angel Medical Center will occupy approximately two-thirds of the three-story building. The largest level — the second floor — will house Angel Medical Center’s outpatient medical oncology and related infusion services. Angel’s rehabilitation services, including occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy services, along with related support services, will be located on the lower level.
Western Carolina Digestive Consultants will occupy the top floor of the building, which will include a GI procedure suite.
The new cancer center in the building received major financial support from Nantahala Bank and Macon Bank. The capital campaign, Building for a Better Experience, is still seeking donations.
