Ground broken at Tumbleweed site PDF Print E-mail

The weather was cold, but the spirits were high as Tumbleweed held a ribbon cutting/ground breaking for their new location on Mulberry Street.


The new resturant is located next to the Cobbleston Hotel and is expected to be complete some time in may.

“We are honored to be here today,” said Tumbleweed President and CEO Matt Higgins, “this has been a long time and the culmination of a lot of hard work with community involved people. We came together with an idea a year and a half ago. With some hard work and committment, we are able to celebrate the breaking of ground.

“Tumbleweed has missed being here and being part of this community and we are looking forward to being part of it again.”

Tumbleweed had a location that burned down in 2014.

The new resturant is expected to bring 80 jobs to the community when it opens.

The project was originally going to start in 2016, but according to Jeremy Sons, who is vice president and COO, it was put on hold because of design and economics.

“We are glad to have all that worked out and are super excited about work gettng started,” Sons said. “Prior to the fire we were in this community for 20 years and are glad to be coming back. We’ve always gotten great support not only from Salem, but Washington County and the surrounding areas.
