The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce had a ribbon cutting and grand opening for Boots Sports Bar and Grill on Sept. 30 at the restaurant at 720 E. Oglethorpe Hwy in Hinesville.
Chamber office manager Erin Johnson, welcomed owner, Sue Yang, her husband, Antoine Nguyen, and their staff to the Chamber. Karen Bell, incoming Chamber board chairwoman, offered support on behalf of the Chamber staff and board members.
County Commission Chairman Donald Lovette said Yang had done a marvelous job renovating the building and thanked them for investing in Liberty County. He said new business invigorates a community.
Hinesville Downtown Development Authority Executive Director Michelle Ricketson said she was pleased to see the lights on in the building and that, as a downtown resident, she was thrilled to have the restaurant in downtown Hinesville.
