Have you noticed the historical building that recently got a facelift?
According to the Greer Heritage Museum: "Ponders Ice Cream first occupied 107 Trade Street, then moved to the larger store and factory located on East Poinsett. There, they made high-quality ice cream and also ran a bottling company that made a range of sodas, including a "knock off" of Coca-Cola; but they were famous for Ponder's Ginger Ale. They also made ginger ale for Chick Springs. Through the 20th century Ponders was a destination and bright spot for many Greer residents."
Were you able to meet up with The Platform at last week's Greenville Drive game? It was all part of the third annual #StartupGVL, a night to spotlight and celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship across the Upstate.
