Inner City Economic Development Loan
County Comission District: 08 | City Council District: 07, 08


Carnell Vann, Jr. (dba, Vann Cut), was awarded a $20,000 Inner City Economic Development (ICED) Loan to help complete buildout of interior renovations and improve the visibility and appearance of the exterior at 2546 North Watkins. Total project costs are $52,737.

Mr. Vann has more than 20 years of experience as a professional barber. A Frayser native, Mr. Vann has spent his career working in barber shops and building a loyal clientele.

Mr. Vann has sought a highly visible location that is large enough for six stations and a reception area. The four-bay shopping center is located near residential neighborhoods and is the first destination north of the Interstate 40 exit. The closest barbershop to this location is more than two miles away.

The loan will help Mr. Vann renovate the 1,100 square foot space constructed in 1969 by completing electrical, lighting and plumbing upgrades, installing new cabinets and ceiling tiles, upgrading the HVAC, and painting the exterior. This project is supported by The Frayser Community Development Corporation.
