When it comes to protection, few features are as important as the roof above your head. Your roof is much more than just a hat for your house - it keeps outside elements like rain, sleet, snow, and wind outside so you and your family can stay comfortable and dry inside. A properly maintained roof also helps protect your home's structural integrity, keeps critters out, and insulates your home during cold months. With all that said, it's easy to see why your roof plays such a crucial role in your everyday life. That's why, when your roof needs maintenance or replacement, you need to work with experienced, trustworthy roofers in Moncks Corner, SC.

Because, at the end of the day, your satisfaction is our #1 priority.
Your home's roof is exposed to the elements 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. As a homeowner, you probably do your best to keep your roof in good condition with regular maintenance and inspections. However, even properly maintained roofs can be damaged without notice. Mother Nature has her own set of rules, and when she chooses to unleash her power on your roof, there isn't too much you can do.
If your roof is leaking, growing moss, or your shingles are cracked, it's time to call the pros. You need contractors that are efficient, effective, and on-time. That's where Hixon's Roofing comes in.

It doesn't matter if we installed your roof or not, Hixon's will provide top-notch customer service and the highest quality roofing repairs in Moncks Corner.
While some situations like downed trees require obvious roof repair, it's not always clear when your roof needs some TLC. Keep these common signs in mind the next time you do a visual inspection of your roof:
If the shingles on your roof are cracked or curling, you can safely assume that they are nearing the end of their lifespan. If you notice shingles missing, it's an obvious sign that your roof needs some repair.
Asphalt and composite shingles will shed granules over time, especially when they're starting to wear out. Often, these granules find their way into your gutter system. When you're cleaning your gutters this quarter, keep an eye out for this course, black grit. It's a telltale sign that your roof may need attention or repair.
It's a good idea for every homeowner to check their attics for signs of leaks and general disrepair. While you're up there, look at the ceiling in your attic. If you notice the rafters or decking is sagging towards the ground, you could have a serious problem on your hands caused by a leak. If your roof deck is sagging, call Hixon's as soon as possible for an inspection. If the damage is localized, you can often avoid a full roof replacement.

Residential and commercial roofing are similar in that they both require experienced contractors to perform quality work. However, unlike residential roofing (a more straightforward process), commercial roofing projects can be complicated and lengthy. In our experience, there can be dozens of factors to be considered to complete the job correctly. Commercial roofing contractors in Moncks Corner, SC, must account for rooftop HVAC systems, external piping, external utilities, and more. Because commercial roofing structures typically have many layers, it's more difficult to find and remediate leaks. As such, our commercial roofing contractors have different skillsets than residential roofing pros.
Like the residential side of our business, we have completed hundreds of commercial roofing projects in South Carolina. We know exactly what it takes to repair, install, or inspect a commercial roof. When businesses in South Carolina need roofing work, they come to Hixon's Roofing because they know that we will get the job done right the first time. They know that our team is dependable, friendly, and highly qualified to accomplish any commercial roofing project.

If you're starting a commercial roofing project, don't settle for mediocre roofing contractors. After all, a commercial roofing project can be a huge investment, and you need to get your money's worth. Hixon's is here to exceed your expectations and take on any commercial roofing needs you may have, whether they're minor fixes or major roofing replacements.

Krystal Restaurants LLC has signed a deal with Lenard “Charlamagne Tha God” McKelvey and his wife and business partner, Jessica Gadsden-McKelvey, to franchise six quick-service locations in South Carolina, the company said Monday.
The Dunwoody, Ga.-based slider brand said the McKelveys plan to open the first of six contracted locations in the McKelveys’ hometown of Moncks Corner, S.C., a community north of Charleston.
Krystal said the McKelvey units would likely include branding from “Charlamagne Tha God,” similar to a deal with former football player Victor Cruz, and be a smaller, prototype unit. The brand has also named rapper 2 Chainz as its head of creative marketing, and he plans to develop stores in the Atlanta area.
Casey Terrell, Krystal’s chief marketing officer, said in an interview Monday, “We're working with the partners that we sign so they've got their own brand.
“They really want to grow and expand, especially Charlemagne and his wife being
in this together,” Terrell said. “I think our plan now on the development side is that we still have our core brand and store builds. But Vic Cruz is a great example: He'll have memorabilia in his store, and he'll have some of his signature things up as accents —things that really personalize it for them.”=
The McKelveys, in a statement said: “The Krystal restaurant brand is known for bringing quality ingredients and creativity to customers, and we are proud to be franchise owners.”
Terrell said he expects the first 2 Chainz unit to open by second quarter of 2023, and Cruz is looking for real estate in Paterson, N.J., his hometown.
He added that the 2 Chainz units may be different the McKelvey and Cruz restaurants.
“2 Chainz is a little bit different,” he said. “Because he's our creative officer, his are very Atlanta-based. They're designed to be a little bit more test-innovation centers.”
Traditional Krystal’s units are about 2,700 square feet, and prototype unit are about 30% smaller, a company spokesperson said, adding that one 1,200-square-foot prototype is drive-thru- and carryout-only, and another is 1,700 square feet and offers drive-thru, carryout and a small lobby for dine-in service.
The celebrity franchisees are part of Krystal’s brand repositioning, Terrell said, to be a little “edgier.”
“We are a brand that’s 90 years old,” he noted, “and so we’re just taking a brand a different direction that's a little bit edgier — more of that kind of maverick-outlaw persona or brand archetype. We are really looking for partners that fit that same persona.=
An added advantage is the celebrities existing base of followers on social media and in their areas of expertise, he said.
Jonathan Childs, Krystal’s managing partner, in a statement added: “Authenticity and sense of community are important characteristics that we look for in our partnerships. Both Charlamagne and Jessica embody these qualities and we’re ecstatic to bring Krystal to the greater Charleston area and expand our footprint nationally.”
Krystal, founded in 1932, has nearly 300 restaurants in 10 states.

In recent years, the franchise industry has attracted a number of high profile superstar franchisees looking to invest their celebrity earnings in proven business models and reap the rewards. Kanye West is believed to have bought ten Burger King outlets back in 2010 as an anniversary gift for his then-fiance Kim Kardashian. Former NBA star and actor Shaquille O'Neal has a huge portfolio of franchise investments, including over 150 Five Guys restaurants, 40 24-Hour Fitness franchises, 9 Papa Johns locations and more.

In recent years, the franchise industry has attracted a number of high profile superstar franchisees looking to invest their celebrity earnings in proven business models and reap the rewards. Kanye West is believed to have bought ten Burger King outlets back in 2010 as an anniversary gift for his then-fiance Kim Kardashian. Former NBA star and actor Shaquille O'Neal has a huge portfolio of franchise investments, including over 150 Five Guys restaurants, 40 24-Hour Fitness franchises, 9 Papa Johns locations and more. Tennis star Venus Williams has 4 Jamba Juice franchise stores in Washington DC and the rapper and entrepreneur Rick Ross is said to own 25 Wingstop franchises.
Of course signing up a celebrity as a franchise partner brings with it not just the financial investment but the associated star quality and celebrity endorsement, which in turn attracts increased interest and new audiences to the brand. After Rick Ross joined forces with Wingstop he said that some of his locations saw sales jump by a huge 50%. And after his mention of the company in one of the rapper's songs, wing sales were reported to have increased across all Wingstop franchises.
Now Krystal, the oldest quick service service restaurant chain in the South of the US, has announced a brand new celebrity partnership with American radio host and television personality Charlamagne tha God, and his wife and business partner, Jessica Gadsden-McKelvey. The couple have signed on the dotted line to launch 6 franchise locations in 2023, with the first one being in Charlamagne’s hometown of Moncks Corner, South Carolina.
Krystal started life in 1932 in Chattanooga, Tennessee and is believed to be the seventh oldest burger chain in the whole of the US. It operates a mix of both company owned and franchised locations and is famed for its square hamburger patty "slider" with a steamed bun. The quick service brand has certainly not had the smoothest of rides over the past two decades, running into financial difficulties in late 2018 and 2019 and then filing for bankruptcy protection at the start of 2020. It was then acquired by Fortress Investment Group, a subsidiary of SoftBank, in May 2020 who brought on Golden Child Holdings, a large Pizza Hut franchisee, as its operating partner and installed Thomas Stager, a partner at Golden Child, as Krystal’s president.
Stager took over at what was clearly a very challenging time for the long established business. Krystal’s sales were reportedly slacking, its location count dropped from 363 in 2017 to 287 by mid 2022 and it was reported that many franchisees were looking to sell. A shake up of the executive board, the establishment of a single Krystal Council franchise committee and harnessing the involvement of the brand’s two largest franchisees, who operate 45 and 11 restaurants respectively, to drive the development of a new prototype and new menu items were some of the first major initiatives. Outdated restaurants were earmarked for remodel, new locations were redesigned with smaller footprints and drive-thru lanes, and a mobile app was launched in 2011.
But perhaps one of the most significant factors in the turning point of Krystal's fortunes has been the new creative marketing initiatives and celebrity endorsements which the brand has brought in, spearheaded by Chief Marketing Officer Alice Crowder who was appointed to the role in June 2021. The close of 2021 saw the chain announce that Superbowl champion Victor Cruz would be opening up to 5 franchise branches in New Jersey and in early 2022 the brand joined forces with rapper 2 Chainz, announcing him as their Head of Creative Marketing. The 2 Chainz deal has a partnership focus on two restaurants in Atlanta branded as "2 Chainz Krystal", decorated in his style and housing some of his memorabilia. This quickly saw results reflected in increased sales, with Crowder saying in March 2022 that "The restaurant we have started co-running with 2 Chainz, we're seeing results up in the double digits from the rest of the market, and we're seeing that the market, Atlanta, is doing better than the rest of the system."
Endorsements from other celebrities such as Brittany Renner, and Ray J have followed, with the brand dedicating part of their marketing budget to celebrity and influencer connections. The newest celebrity franchise partnership with Charlamagne tha God and his wife will see the couple personally design the interior of their stores and is part of Krystal's ambitious plans for rapid franchise growth as well as increased brand awareness. "We are ecstatic to partner with Charlamagne and expand our footprint nationwide. Charlamagne pushes the envelope nationally by spotlighting important topics in society," said Krystal's chairman Jonathan Childs.
Celebrity endorsements might not be a new thing for Krystal, previously claimed to have been a favourite restaurant of Elvis Presley and with Samuel L. Jackson appearing in a Krystal commercial way back in 1975, but the Southern quick service brand will be hoping that this most recent famous sign-up together with its other star franchise partnerships will set it firmly on track to achieve the expansion goal of reaching 500 restaurants within five years.

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – Berkeley County, Town of Moncks Corner leaders and public safety officials recently celebrated the unveiling of the new MUSC Children’s Health Pediatrics facility in Moncks Corner with Dr. Joseph West and Dr. Luke Emmanuel Edmondson.
Dr. West and his pediatric primary care practice of more than 40 years, Moncks Corner Pediatrics, officially joined MUSC as MUSC Children’s Health Pediatrics – Moncks Corner on August 1.
Mark Scheurer, M.D., Children’s and Women’s Services chief, says it’s an absolute pleasure to see his initial conversation with West come to fruition.
“Several years ago, when Dr. West and I walked through the new children’s hospital together, I learned about his decades-long dedication to the kids and families of Moncks Corner and beyond,” Scheurer said. “We discussed our hopes for the new children’s hospital and the need to connect it to folks where they live, to serve them where they are. It was just a conversation, but it was clear to both of us that there was an opportunity to make it more substantive to help directly connect this community to the children’s hospital and serve them better.”
MUSC Health leaders, the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Moncks Corner, and the Moncks Corner pediatric team gathered on Wednesday, October 12, for a ribbon-cutting event to honor the partnership and recognize West’s contributions to the community and the care he has provided over the years.
West has been in practice for 43 years and says he is excited to have the partner he never had but now does, Dr. Luke Edmondson.
“What a testimony to Dr. West in terms of so much time here in practice and wanting to do what’s right for the community and partnering with MUSC to continue his legacy in Moncks Corner,” said Terrence E. Steyer, M.D., College of Medicine interim dean.
The practice, located at 5000 Epson Plantation Drive, Suite B in Moncks Corner, is a recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and provides convenient primary care for children from birth through 18 years of age.
Ranked as the #1 children’s hospital in South Carolina by U.S. News & World Report, patients and families have direct access to nationally-ranked, dedicated pediatric experts in multiple specialties – from yearly physicals to referrals to specialty clinics, plus children-only labs, imaging, and more.
For more information, visit MUSCkids.org/PrimaryCare. To schedule an appointment, call 843-876-0444.

Election Day has come and gone with little drama, locally. The area voted as expected, most local leaders kept their seats and will continue to serve.
Numbers from the South Carolina Election Commission show that in Berkeley County, roughly 48 percent of those 149,091 registered cast a vote. There were 71,983 ballots cast.
Some of those were early voters at three locations offered. Between Oct. 24 until Nov. 5, at the county office in Moncks Corner, there 12,037 early voters. The Hanahan Library had 7,366 voters and the St. Stephen Library had 1,843 early voters.
Unofficial results show from the election commission shows three referendums crucial in getting money for schools, roads and conservation were given the thumbs- up by voters in Berkeley County. The penny sales tax which has been extended will continue to generate funds for the next seven years. Some work being competed so far with the money is the entrance and exit in Cane Bay, Railroad Avenue in Hanahan. Henry Brown Blvd. and various dirt-to-pave projects.
It was first adopted in 2008 and is used to ease the county’s growing pains with work that has long been overdue.
“The voters have made their voice heard by agreeing to continue funding our County’s successful One-Cent Sales Tax Program another seven years,” said Supervisor Johnny Cribb. “This vote has ensured the completion of additional critical road and infrastructure projects across our area and will ultimately help reduce traffic and improve quality of life for all citizens.”
The unofficial results show Supervisor Cribb being elected to a second term. He got the win over challenger Tory Liferidge.
A penny tax will also continue for schools. The Educational Capital Improvements Referendum was passed. The money raised goes towards building new schools and updating existing facilities.
The other is Berkeley County’s Transportation and Green Space Referendum. A portion of that money goes towards conservation.
“In poll after poll, voters say Berkeley County is growing too fast, leading to record losses of open space and wildlife habitat, polluting our rivers and lakes, and threatening our quality of life,” said John Tynan Executive Director of Conservation Voters of South Carolina
“With today’s [Nov. 8], overwhelming YES vote on the transportation and greenspace referendum, Berkeley County voters sent a resounding message that they value their quality of life and the environment,” he said in a statement.
The incumbents being challenged on County Council won as well. Both district four’s Tommy Newell and district 8’s Steve Davis will keep their seats.
Goose Creek Mayor Greg Habib easily won against his opponent Mike Delany.
“Thank you to the citizens of Goose Creek for such a decisive win,” said Habib on social media. “I believe in what we’re doing and the direction of our city.”
He also added that he looks forward to moving ahead with council members. The body will have a new, but familiar face with challenger Chris Harmon winning his, at-large bid.
The Berkeley County School District will two new members with both Jimmy Hinson and Joe Baker defeating their challengers.
