A staple in Charlotte is closing this week.
The last few years in Charlotte have been bittersweet; it’s been really cool to see the growth of the city, but there is also a sad part to the growth. Many long-time Charlotte businesses have closed in the last few years. Whether it be because they could never recover from the pandemic, or they’re being “shoved” out due to skyrocketing rent costs, we’ve seen a lot of businesses that were once staples in Charlotte, now closed.
This week, we will see one of Charlotte oldest restaurants close.
According to QC News, Green’s Lunch will close. The restaurant announced the news over the weekend. Green’s Lunch is an uptown Charlotte eatery that has been in business for 97 years.
The company cited area growth and the inability to keep up as their reasoning for closing their doors just shy of their century long run.
It is technically the oldest remaining restaurant in Charlotte, so this is quite a loss in my opinion to the history of the City.
If you want to stop by one last time to try one of their hotdogs(which they are known for), you have until Wednesday before Green’s Lunch will officially close their doors.
