Former owners Win, Patti Myint to continue operations of International Market & Restaurant on site

After recently announcing a new enrollment record of 8,080 students, Belmont University closed today on the purchase of four lots from Win and Prapasri (Patti) Myint.  The property is located on the corner of Belmont Boulevard and Bernard Avenue and includes the Myints’ International Market & Restaurant, which will continue its operation on the site. This acquisition allows Belmont to begin planning for future opportunities to expand academic spaces to support its growing student body.

Belmont President Dr. Bob Fisher said, “While we don’t have any immediate plans for that area, I’m excited to see how we can use that corner of the campus in the coming years to serve our students. I’m especially grateful to the Myints for embracing education as the future product of this site; a property that has allowed them to live their dream will now enable future generations to do the same.”

The Myint family said, “We are proud of Belmont University’s growth and optimistic for Nashville’s evolution. The time is right for our family, and we would like to extend our deepest gratitude for everyone’s support over the last 40-plus years.”
