Calling All Cooks

You've probably seen the "Coming Soon" signs on the warehouse that sat empty for a couple years at the corner of Bryant & Freedom Drive. Carolina Cooks will open a 31,000 square foot warehouse including a 10,000 showroom, which will be open to both restaurateurs and the public. Home chefs will be able to get restaurant-quality supplies including gourmet pots and pans, appliances and furniture (stools, outdoor dining, etc.). Restaurants will be able to buy a full array of restaurant equipment. The store will have a chef on staff and is planning some events starting this fall.

Owned by local native, Kristina Cook Bortle, and her husband, Kelly, they are relocating and doubling the size of their business in FreeMoreWest because of exposure and proximity to uptown Charlotte and the concentration of great restaurants in the corridor.

"We loved the growth of the community and how much is happening on the West side," said Kelly Bortle. "Our store should be a lot of fun for the area."

The store will be opening in August, and is a Green Egg grill dealer!
