RICHARD LEGGITT and Subs is Westmoreland A Westmoreland County business woman has become the latest entre- preneur to open a new business in Port Royal, the historic Rappahan- nock River town on U.S. 301 that is seeing a steady renewal after years of downturn. T.C. Hackett, who already oper- ates a mobile food truck operation in Montross and Westmoreland Coun- ty, has opened Port Royal Pizza and Subs at 25650 James Madison High- way just south of the Caroline King George County line. "My oldest daughter, Shawnese, has been looking for a location for us to open a new restaurant," Hack- ett said. "By the grace of God, she found this building. It's perfect for our purposes." As the name implies, HackeR's new business features pizza and subs. They are made on the premises from the very freshest dough with more than a dozen toppings avail- able at very reasonable prices, she said. Salads, burgers, sandwiches, chicken strips, fries and mozzarella sticks are also on the menu. The opening of the new business is part of a resurgence of the port town which has seen several new busi- nesses come to town in the last year including two new antique stores and an auction house. The landmark Horne's restaurant on the corner of U.S. 301 and Route 17 has also been sold and is undergoing improve- ments. "You might want to keep an eye on Port Royal" said Rebecca Nelson, another woman who does business in the town. "It is coming back to life." "There are some good people here in Port Royal," said HackeR. "I enjoy my customers and they have treated me real nice." Hackett, who was born and raised in the Mt. Holly area A Westmoreland business woman has opened her second food business, a is undergoing a business renewal. of Westmoreland County, has been involved in the food preparation business for years. She began working for the West- moreland County Commissioner of Revenue's office 16 years ago and then in 2009, with the help of her husband of 27 years, Walter, and her three children, she began operating a mobile food truck in Westmoreland and the Northern Neck. The truck is called Deluctable De- lights and has been a very successful enterprise for Hacker and her fam- ily. "We do events in Westmoreland County and the surrounding area and we cater small gatherings," said Hackett. na Get results[ Advertise your yard sale in the Journal call Bonnie at 540-775-2024 Due to an ina( iting uating senior Terrance Ear left out of the graduation photo for Colonial Beach High School in the 2016 Graduation Section.
