JOHNSON CITY, TN (May 20, 2021) — McAlister’s Deli® in Johnson City, Tennessee, is excited to celebrate a recent remodel with a Grand Reopening on Monday, May 24. The first 25 guests in line that day will receive a McAlister’s Free Tea for a Year. Every guest that visits us that day will also receive a free tea!*
McAlister’s Deli’s recently renovated its restaurant located at 2111 North Roan Street, Johnson City, TN (near the Johnson City Mall). The restaurant has been a part of the Johnson City community for more than 10 years, first opening in July 2010, and is looking forward to serving guests for many more years to come.
The renovation to the 3,675 sq. ft. restaurant included new exterior signage, new interior design elements and new décor throughout the guest dining area. It also includes the Company’s first Self-Serve Beverage Station, part of new equipment that will speed overall service to guests. The remodel was a substantial investment that focuses on enhancing the guest experience at McAlister’s.
The restaurant was open during the 10-day renovation with the work occurring overnight. The contractor and local subcontractors were extremely flexible and dedicated to helping the restaurant remain open during the entire remodel process. McAlister’s appreciates their guests who continued to visit during the remodel process.
Chris Smith, co-owner of the location said, “I have loved watching the Johnson City location grow in this area of the Tri-Cities. We were happy and excited to reinvest in Johnson City and our team. We hope they will enjoy the update of the interior décor and the benefits of speed of service, both for take-out guests and for our dine-in guests. We also hope that it sets us up to better serve our loyal guests and, of course, attract new guests!”
Jeff Shawl, co-owner of the location, said, “We wanted to invest in Johnson City because the entire community has been so supportive of us during the past 10+ years. We opened in 2010 and the Johnson City supported us more and more each year. We want to thank them for that support!”

March 10, 2021 — Peak Restaurants kicked off the first quarter of the year with three familiar fundraisers that we are happy to participate in each year.
Niswonger Children's Hospital
On March 2, we donated 10% of sales at McAlister's in Johnson City, Kingsport, and Bristol from 5 p.m. to close to Niswonger.
In total, we raised $1,400—17% more than our donation in 2020.
This remains an important partnership for Peak in the Tri-Cities. Niswonger Children's Hospital provides essential care for children in the region. The hospital's location is convenient for families from all across Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, who would other-wise have to travel to receive the same kind of state-of-the-art care.
Rocky Hill Elementary School
On March 9th, we hosted another successful fundraiser for Rocky Hill at Deane Hill McAlister's, raising $750 for the school.
Down Syndrome Awareness
Later in March, we also held a fundraiser for local Down syndrome awareness groups. McAlister’s in the Knoxville area raised $1,700 for the Down Syndrome Awareness Group of East Tennessee in Knoxville; proceeds from the event at Tri-Cities McAlister’s—which raised $732.20—went to FRIENDS, a Down syndrome support group in the Tri-Cities; and McAlister’s in the Virginia Blue Ridge area raised $696.40 for the Down Syndrome Association of Roanoke (DSAR).
In total, Peak raised $3,129.50 for the three local non-profits.
Knoxville, TN. (November 16, 2020) — For the entire month of November, McAlister's Deli donated 10¢ of every cup or bowl of soup sold to Meals on Wheels. Through this campaign, McAlister's Delis nationwide were able to raise over $100k for Meals on Wheels to help combat senior hunger and isolation this holiday season. Peak Restaurants, which operates McAlister's Delis in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, raised $3,025.90 for the non-profit locally.
As a part of this initiative, several members of Peak Restaurants' management team in the Knoxville area lead by example, volunteering their time with their local Meals on Wheels affiliate.
"We had a great time delivering Meals on Wheels to senior citizens," said Chris Graves, Area Director of McAlister's Delis in Knoxville. "It was an honor and extremely rewarding, especially during this pandemic. Speaking with some of the community members was a real treat and we enjoyed them sharing stories. Volunteering for this event was nourishing to the soul."
Representing McAlister's alongside Chris Graves were McAlister's GMs from across the Knoxville area: Zander Benson from Turkey Creek, Candace Reeves from Alcoa, Josh Bisig from Schaad Road, Debra Culver from Pigeon Forge, Rob Wellen from Fountain City, and Matt Marshall from Deane Hill.
We're proud of leadership they showed in volunteering to give back, and thankful to Meals on Wheels for the opportunity to partner with them this holiday season.

Down Syndrome Awareness Groups
October is also Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and Peak held fundraisers at our locations across East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia for local Down syndrome awareness organizations, donating 10% of sales from 5 p.m. to close on October 21.
McAlister’s in the Knoxville area raised $1,800 for the Down Syndrome Awareness Group of East Tennessee in Knoxville, a parent-initiated organization developed to provide information and support to families of individuals with Down syndrome and to raise awareness within the community about the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome and the benefits of their inclusion into society.
Proceeds from the event at Tri-Cities McAlister’s—which raised $582.60—go to FRIENDS, a support group in the Tri-Cities that promotes community understanding and acceptance of individuals with Down syndrome.
McAlister’s in the Virginia Blue Ridge area raised $518.90 for the Down Syndrome Association of Roanoke (DSAR), a non-profit that provides advocacy and recreational activities for those with Down syndrome as well as educational opportunities and support.
