Barker & Christol Gives More

As a full service advertising agency Barker & Christol believes in working closely with their clients. Maybe a little too close. Their dedication and love for their clients has led them to extend an irresistible offer: move your headquarters into the B&C Maple Street office.

Next time you’re making your way downtown and wander up the stairs beside Maple Street Grill, you’ll find more than B&C employees tapping away on their keyboards.

Roscoe Brown, Inc., the one-stop shop for all things HVAC, plumbing, and insulation services, will now be located in the B&C offices. A full service tin shop will be run from the conference room, for all your tin snipping needs. Need a new A/C? Call us up and we’ll lug one down the 26 near perpendicular stairs, into a Roscoe Brown van, and on its way to your home or business!

MTCS Early Learning Center will be offering their Pre-K classes on site as well! Children will get the usual: science, math, Bible study, reading and nap time (nap time is an all inclusive activity, kids and adults). As a special treat, partners Steve Barker and Brooks Christol will be teaching the art of finger painting for the Picasso prodigies.  Full safety measures will be taken to avoid children playing with the Roscoe Brown plasma cutters. B&C interns will also be charged with leading recess once a week, a truly well-rounded internship.

TriState Minority Supplier Development Council’s Impact Awards Gala will now be held just downstairs at Maple Street Grill. Cocktails begin in the Creative Lounge at 8:30.

City Tile has also taken them up on their offer. Innovation was key for City Tile to get in on the new office action. Instead of the usual painted walls, City Tile designers took the space and showcased floors everywhere! Each wall features a different type of flooring. Hardwood? Right wall! Laminate? Left wall! In a not unusual Brooks and Steve spat, the bathroom floor could not be decided on.

“I just don’t know why he thinks we need Crossville tile in Ash for the floor,” Steve Barker said in an interview. “A herringbone pattern is so much more contemporary.”

The great tile dispute was eventually mediated by Autumn Shultz. No one was harmed.

The Jones Company will be featuring a tiny house gallery in the production lounge. Complete with working mini-kitchens and itty-bitty bathrooms to make your mini-dreams come true.

Grandaddy’s Farm also jumped on board! They recently planted corn, pumpkins and mums throughout the office to give it that farm feel. And don’t worry, the hayrides will still be happening. Hop on board and ride around the square downtown. You’ll see things like the Rutherford County courthouse, Linebaugh Public Library (and their new logo) and even a few cars getting parking tickets. Apple cider slushies and pumpkin cookies will still be available for purchase.

So next time you need HVAC, plumbing, insulation, a fancy gala, new floors, mini-homes, a faith-based education, family fun, or a generous marketing agency, stop by Barker & Christol. They’re here for you.
