Danville Produce Stand Gets Business Boost


Danville, VA - Ever since the restaurant "Philly Cheesesteaks and Things" opened at their new location on Riverside Drive, two businesses have boomed.

Riverside Produce and Plants is right next door to the restaurant and that's sent foot traffic over to check out the produce.

The restaurant also gets produce from the stand to use in their recipes.

Riverside Produce owner Jeff Collins says it's good to see locally owned businesses supporting each other.

"Eighty-five percent of what's spent local stays local, versus what goes to a big box store, and I think it's part of our duty what we should do, " said Collins.

Collins says he returns the favor by adding cheesesteaks to his meals quite often.
