Here's a recap of the action in December:
Homewood Suites by Hilton | Cary | Hospitality | New
A Cary hotel development and management company is purchasing a 2.6-acre site overlooking Interstate 40 at Crossroads Boulevard in Cary with plans to build a new six-story Homewood Suites by Hilton in 2016. Construction is expected to start in spring 2016 with the hotel opening projected for summer 2017.
Mohu | Raleigh | Software/IT | Expanding
Mohu, makers of the Leaf antenna, has unveiled BeBox, a portable audio system that, according to execs, rivals what’s being offered at Sonos and Bose. As the product suite grows, so does Mohu’s workforce. The company, which recently added a second shift to its Raleigh team, has about 100 employees. One year ago, it had 55. The company is headquartered in north Raleigh.
Trophy Brewing Company | Raleigh | Brewery | Expanding
Trophy Brewing Co. opened its production brewery and taproom on Maywood Avenue near the State Farmers Market on the south side of downtown Raleigh. The taproom will have 12 beers on draft, counter pressure filled growlers, a cask engine, and occasional bottle releases. The production brewery features a 20-barrel, three-vessel brewing system. Additionally, the location will start with enough fermentation and conditioning tanks to handle up to 240 barrels (7,440 gallons) of beer at any one time before packaging or kegging. The location will start with distribution to a limited number of restaurants and bars initially, and then expand as it grows.
