John Carney; an executive
officer of Indian Creek, Inc.;
has this week announced plans
for two new business ventures
here in Perquimans County.
Both of these ventures involve
food marketing, a field which
Carney has extensive prior
experience and knowledge.
Carney said that work is
presently underway for a
resturant to be located in the
Bethel Community on the banks
of Indian Creek, locally
referred to as Bethel Creek, and
that it will specialize in seafood
and carry a good selection of
choice steaks. This resturant
will be named "The Fisher
man's Wharf' and will feature
schooner decor. The resturant
will be acessable both by car
and boat. Dredging permits
have already been applied for
to extend a canal from Indian
Creek to the resturant. A free
boat launching ramp will be
constructed on , the
canal. Carney said the building,
which'will house the resturant is
being extensively renovated at
a cost of about $35,000.00 and
that the facility should be open
in forty days or less. The
resturant has a planned seating
capacity of 100 people and will
be open for both lunch and the
evening meal.
, The second operation an
nounced by Carney is a
resturant catering to con
venience foods and ice-box pies
and is to be the pilot operation
for a string of convenience food
outlets known as "Lil" Champ".
The parent organization for "Lil
Champ" is Carney, Sons and
Perry, "of which Carney is
president, and their present
plans call for five more "Lil
Champs" to open in the
