A new burger joint is set to open in the sixth block of Main Street across from RAO Video in late October or early November. Clyde Rhodes will be the local owner and manager of the first Home Fresh Burgers, in partnership with a Los Angeles company, HFB National Holdings. Rhodes spent 21 years in Los Angeles, running a hazardous waste facility, before returning to his hometown to open his own fast food restaurant. "I've always had this concept of a burger facility, and I wanted to do it in the South," he said. "I love food, and I worked at Bennigan's at Markham and University in the late seventies, before college. I've been looking for an opportunity to get into the business, and when it came, I jumped." Home Fresh will serve 100% Angus char-grilled beef, curly fries and hand-dipped shakes. There will be in-store seating, and tentative hours will be 11 a.m. till 10 p.m., except on Sundays, when Home Fresh will close at 6 p.m. Rhodes chose Main Street because, "There's renovation taking place, and I've always thought downtown was a great place to be."
