Non-profit uptown restaurant to employ those in need, serve southern food

Posted on 1 Jun 2008 by Justin Ruckman

Jim Noble, the minister and chef behind the upscale Noble’s and trendy Rooster’s — both in SouthPark — plans to open a not-for-profit restaurant this winter in uptown Charlotte.

The King’s Kitchen will employ, train and minister to troubled youth, graduates of rehabilitation programs and the unemployed. (…)

The King’s Kitchen will serve “the best pan-fried chicken in the Southeast,” says Noble (…).

You might not see much difference between the King’s Kitchen and other down-home places. But the staff will include bus boys and waiters who might have recently been on the street, and the profits go to help the poor.”
