Cheffie’s Cafe Bringing Fresh, Tasty Make-Your-Own Concept to Schilling Farms

The Collierville Herald

Cheffie’s Café is adding a new location in Collierville, Tennessee, bringing local flavor to the Schilling Farms community with fresh made salads, sandwiches, and soups.  Tate Conrad, Vice President of Design and Development for MEM Hospitality, says “The new Cheffie’s Café will be the prototype of the company.”  The team at Cheffie’s Café is partnering with Schilling Farms developer Boyle Investment Company to create another successful venture.  “We’ve already had amazing support from the local community and are looking forward to serving the community fresh, custom crafted salads and sandwiches beginning this summer,” said Matt Wilson, partner in the venture.

Wilson added the new Cheffie’s Café will add approximately 15-20 jobs to the local economy.

The new Cheffie’s Café is located at 956 Winchester Blvd., Boyle’s new retail building located within their master-planned 443-acre Schilling Farms community.  Schilling Farms was started by Boyle in 1998 and incorporates all of the elements of small-town life, including office buildings, a variety of residential neighborhoods, retail, restaurants, doctors’ offices, a daycare center, YMCA, banks, D1 Sports, and a church.   The new Cheffies Café is situated in the heart of the Schilling Farms community and is conveniently adjacent to a wide variety of residential communities within Schilling Farms, including single family neighborhoods, town homes, retirement communities, and several multi-family communities, such as The Carrington at Schilling Farms.  The new Cheffie’s Cafe is also just around the corner from the Helena Chemical Company headquarters facility and the new 50,000-square- foot mixed-use building owned by Boyle.   Schilling Farms was designed using the principles of New Urbanism, which encourages walking, and Cheffies’ Café will be within walking distance for both residents and office workers.

“Boyle’s new shopping center at 956 Winchester in Schilling Farms is an ideal location for small businesses and restaurants needing high visibility and signage,” said Jonathan Aur, the Boyle commercial sales and leasing agent who handled the transaction.  “We are thrilled to welcome Cheffie’s Café as the first tenant in our new shopping center, and we know the many residents and office workers at Schilling Farms are looking forward to enjoying this new dining option.  Discussions are underway with a number of additional current and new-to-market prospects, and we anticipate the center will soon be fully occupied.”

Founded in 1933, Boyle Investment Company is one of Memphis’ oldest real estate development, management, and leasing firms specializing in mixed-use, office, retail, industrial and residential properties.  For more information, visit
