Chism family in support mode as businesses are raided

The Chisms are well known throughout the Memphis community for their entrepreneurship going back to the days of Chism Trail convenience and grocery stores. Over the years, the family's string of businesses have included a number day-cares, the Eo'j Restaurant and Lounge in East Memphis, Chism Express Car Wash in Whitehaven, Best Wings of Memphis, and Onix Restaurant and Lounge downtown.

"Those family members involved are cooperating with the investigation," a family spokesperson told The New Tri-State Defender Thursday afternoon. "At this point it is just that, an investigation and we are learning more information as we go."

"We are a strong, close-knit family. In over 50 years of entrepreneurship we have never experienced anything like this. So we are prayerful, supportive and vigilant that justice will be done."

NOTE: Shelby County Commissioner Sidney Chism, also a day-care operator, is of no direct relation to this group of Chisms.

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog
stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Kudos
