"When you're in the hospitality business, it's all about taking care of the customer. In the same way, our patners at Cornerstone have been taking care of our financial needs since we bought the historic inn back in 2008. It's that exceptional customer experience that keeps our guests coming back to the Chanticleer Inn and what keeps us with Cornerstone."

"There's something very rewarding about the art of growing your own food.  That's why we take great pride in serving only the freshest produce available in our Bluff View Art District restaurants.  The highest art form is not just what you put on the plate, but how you bring those ingredients together.  When it came to our banking relationship, we chose to partner with Cornerstone Community Bank.  Like us, they are locally owned, locally operated and firmly rooted here in Chattanooga.  After all, there's nothing like homegrown."
