GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - After 30 years of operation in Stone County, the owners of the Pecan House have expanded their business.
The owners, Billy and Phyllis Shoemake, held a grand opening Friday at their new, 1,800-square-foot location on Cowan-Lorraine Road in Gulfport.
They say many of their customers from the Coast requested a more convenient location.
"We have a lot of customers on the Coast. We just kept hearing, 'We wish you were closer. We wish you were closer.' So, that's what brought it on," said Phyllis.
After several of those requests, they realized it would be worth it.
"Over the last year, we've been looking for somewhere in this area to move, because of the amount of people who come north," said Billy. "We thought like it would be good, so we finally decided on this one, because it was convenient and it was a new facility."
The Pecan House is open Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
