Big Week for New Charlotte Openings

Duck Donuts Opening

This is a big week for new restaurants here in the Queen City.  Yesterday both Duck Donuts and Hot Taco opened to the general public.   Duck Donuts, which is known for its hot fresh donuts, opened in the Kenilworth Commons Shopping Center in Dilworth.  Hot Taco opened in Southend in the former Greek Isles location.  The Bottle Cap Group is behind Hot Taco.  They own several restaurants including Braswell’s, All-American Pub and Whiskey Warehouse.

Chop’t Creative Salad Company is opening this Friday in the Park Road Shopping Center.  This will be the first Chop’t outside of New York and Washington DC.  They have a VIP ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday and will open Friday at 10:30 am.  Look for long lines during the first few weeks.

You can find me working the PR angle for restaurants around town and keeping the RT readers informed about the latest happenings.


  1. Is it just me but are those Hot Taco figurines racist? Everyone finds offense with the littlest thing and those seem to cross the line.

  2. They sure look racist to me but I am not Hispanic.
