Knox County's next cash mob will offer some sweet treats for customers!
The county's fifth cash mob will be held at Koolioz Frozen Yogurt. It's located at 10645 Hardin Valley Road, just off Pellissippi Parkway, from 5-7 pm Friday night.
The cash mobs are designed to bring attention to locally owned, small businesses. Participants are asked to visit the business during the designated times and spend a few bucks.
The mayor says it's important to support local business owners in all areas of town.
"This is just another small business. It's another area of town. Of course, people associate West Knoxville with wealth and affluent folks, but generally speaking, it's just hard-working people. And the folks that own this one, entrepreneurs. And it's the type of thing we'd like to support," said Mayor Tim Burchett.
