No new name was given at the time, however, and Dixie, a publicly traded company, still hasn’t announced one. But members of the executive leadership team recently told Westword that they plan to announce the new name before year’s end, with new branding coming shortly afterward. We’ll keep you posted on that; in the meantime, feel free to send in new name suggestions.
