The Chamber Ambassadors held a ribbon cutting in honor of new ownership, rebranding, and continued growth at Ella’s Top Corral.
Ella McGhee gained ownership of Ella’s Top Corral in 2006—not long ago, relative to the restaurant’s opening in 1976. For 42 years, Ella’s has been providing the Valdosta community with a taste of Southern cooking. Their beef is always fresh, never frozen, and cooked to order for each individual customer.
“Fresh ingredients, friendly service and a family atmosphere are what keep our customers coming back again and again,” said Nick Perry, general manager. “We love what we do because our customers love us.” This relationship is evident on the restaurant’s Facebook page, which is buzzing with five-star ratings and positive comments.
Ella’s Top Corral is always looking for new ways to serve the Valdosta community. In May, the restaurant will be partnering with the Feed the Cats program at Valdosta High School to serve 150 burgers to the Valdosta Wildcats Football Team at their Spring Football Camp. Among the restaurant’s other future plans are hosting the Chamber’s monthly networking event, Business After Hours, in August and sponsoring youth sports programs in the fall.
This year, Ella’s Top Corral was awarded Best Hamburger by the Valdosta Daily Times in their Best of South Georgia 2018 contest.
Perry says that Chamber has “provided opportunities for networking, promotions and business development” in ways that helped business. “We are very excited to host our first Business After Hours event with the Chamber this fall,” Perry said.
Visit Ella’s Top Corral at 1007 S Patterson St. Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or call them at 229-241-0322.
