Manassas City officials pause each May to recognize businesses

With roughly 1,600 establishments, the City of Manassas is fortunate to have a thriving base of business and industry to support the local economy. 

These businesses provide essential employment opportunities, generate tax revenues, and make other significant contributions to our community that improves the quality of life of our citizens.

It is for this reason, City officials pause each May to recognize businesses and express gratitude for their unique role in enhancing the economy. 

More than 100 businesses gathered at the Center for the Arts yesterday morning for the City’s 4th Annual Business Appreciation Breakfast.  This is a rare opportunity for City officials, community leaders and businesses of all sizes to engage one another and make lasting connections. 

Dr. Scott Ralls, President of Northern Virginia Community College provided keynote remarks on the critical role of higher education in economic development.  He specifically focused on new initiatives and programs at the college to better support the workforce needs of local employers. 

The City’s Department of Economic Development also released its Annual Report which provides highlights of new and expanding businesses as well as key performance indicators used to track our progress.  Most of these are trending in the right direction. 

The employment rate closed the year at 96.5% (by all measures extremely high), household incomes and median home prices rose, the number of business establishments increased, meals and sales tax receipts went up and the number of visitors to Manassas increased year over year.

Silver Diner is shortening its menu and offering new items

WOODBRIDGE — Silver Diner is moving further into to the world of farm-to-table dining with new choices on a shorter menu.

The diner will add new vegan, vegetarian, and heather items like Asian brown rice bowls, avocado toast, and a new meatless miso burger.

It’s the first major change on the Silver Diner menu in 10 years, when the chain traded its traditional diner food for more selected farm-to-table options, and sourcing food from regional farmers.

We’ve learned from our research on the industry trends and from our customers that shorter menus with higher quality food are more popular,” stated Executive Chef YpeVon Hengst in an email.  “The Silver Diner executive team takes regular food research trips to specific areas of the country—New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, etc.  Recently, they traveled to LA where they spent three days at the most popular restaurants evaluating their menus and speaking with owners, wait staff, and diners. Through these trips, we get a good sense of new trends that are working.”

Though Von Hengst says the menu will be shorter than before, the diner is also adding acai yogurt bowls and new “sophisticated” brunch items. Bloody Mary’s and mimosas will also be added to the drink line up.

Silver Diner operates 14 restaurants in the Washington, D.C. area with a location in outside Potomac Mills mall in at 14375 Smoketown Road in Woodbridge.
