Charlotte Black Restaurant Week, 2018


 In the last decade, an array of black-owned restaurants have planted roots in Charlotte, NC (& Surrounding Areas). Unfortunately, we have also witnessed the closing of quite a few restaurants due to several factors; Lack of awareness by the general public, Charlotte's feeble economy, & higher than average leasing rates! Black Business Owners of Charlotte realized the Need and decided to bring Exposure to the restaurants that survived

   Charlotte BLACK Restaurant Week, will help Drive consumers to 20+ wonderful restaurants & hundreds more Black-owned businesses, and ensure they are SEEN, HEARD, & PATRONIZED!!
