In November 2006, Christi Druin took a chance and opened a small business on Dixie Highway. From that day forward, Christi’s Café has developed a great reputation for its home cooking and friendly service for the people of Valley Station.
On Monday, President David Yates (D-25) and Councilwoman Cindi Fowler (D-14) will honor Christi’s Café with a proclamation and a thank you for her continued success as a small businesswoman in Southwest Metro Louisville.
“Christi’s Café is a great example of how small businesses drive the growth of our local economy,” says Yates. “For that reason, we are proud to honor Christi Druin and her dedicated employees for their contribution to making this locally owned and operated business a success.”
Druin is a graduate of Valley High School and the mother of six.
Two years after she started Christi’s Café, she was able to expand and purchase a familiar place along Dixie Highway that was once noted for its food served to the people of Valley Station.
“Everyone has a favorite place to eat and Christi has never forgotten where she came from. She makes her business feel more like a place where you go to meet your family and friends,” says Fowler. “She is successful because she cares about people.”
Christi’s Café is located at 12810 Dixie Highway which has a history for the people of Valley Station. When Druin bought the building, it was the location of a closed upholstery shop. Back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, the building was the location of Scotties Restaurant which was a local favorite along Dixie Highway.
On Monday November 14th, President Yates and Councilwoman Fowler will visit Christi’s Café at 1:00pm to bestow the proclamation and offer their congratulations on her tenth anniversary of operation.
