DANIEL ISLAND’S MADE 2 MOVE EXPANDING, SHOWS 400 PERCENT GROWTH
Opened in 2016, Made 2 Move Physical Therapy of Daniel Island is marking its third anniversary with a move of its own. The company recently settled into a brand new 1,700-square-foot facility at 885 Island Park Drive, Suite C.
Founder Yves Gege initially launched Made 2 Move as an independent physical therapy practice in a 150-square-foot space inside CrossFit Discovery on Daniel Island. Since opening, the company has seen a nearly 400 percent increase in revenue, while adding six practitioners, according to a press release.
“Our goal is to quickly identify and eliminate your pain, return you to the activities that you love and increase your long term performance,” says Gege, a Charleston native, Bishop England alum and Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) graduate.
Gege worked for more than 10 years in the insurance-based health care industry before deciding to take back control of his life so that he could spend more time with his family and make a bigger impact on his patients. In order to do this, he developed a concierge concept that ignores the traditional insurance-based system, allowing him to spend more time with his patients and give them more attention, continued the release.
Made 2 Move Physical Therapy has grown its outreach to include six practitioners that span four locations, including one therapist who travels to treat patients around the Lowcountry. The new location, directly across the street from Dockery’s and next door to Agaves Cantina, opened Feb. 1. For additional information, visit. www.made2movept.com.
COMMONHOUSE ALEWORKS EARNS MULTIPLE AWARDS
The accolades are bubbling over for Commonhouse Aleworks, co-owned by current Daniel Island resident Pearce Fleming and former resident Hank Hanna. The North Charleston brewery, located in Park Circle, received multiple awards at the recent South Carolina Brewers Guild’s inaugural SC Beer Awards competition.
Brewers and craft beer industry professionals from across the state gathered in Charleston on Feb. 16 for the event at Trident Tech’s Convention Center. According to a press release, the competition was the brainchild of Michael Bondi and Hanna. A total of 38 breweries entered their beers, which were judged ahead of the awards program in a double blind competition.
The winning selections from Commonhouse Aleworks were: “Wise One” – Gold, South German-Style Hefeweizen; “The Salty Air” – Silver, Sour or Brett Beer; “Barony Whipper: Dark Cherry” – Silver, Fruited American-Style Sour Ale; “Park Circle Pale” – Juicy or Hazy Pale Ale; and “Looking East IPA” – Honorable Mention, American-Style India Pale Ale.
“Having recently won awards at the national level in the Los Angeles International Beer Competition and the Best of Craft Beer Awards in Bend, Oregon, it is great to receive recognition at the state level through the South Carolina Beer Awards,” said Fleming. “Great beer is being brewed at local breweries across South Carolina. These awards are a testament to our team at Commonhouse and their commitment to producing top quality beer that folks can gather around and enjoy.”
Commonhouse also won two silver awards at the 2019 Best of Craft Awards competition, for their “Park Circle Pale Ale” and their “Broad Path Brown.”
