What a great addition to the Charlotte restaurant scene.

As you enter The King’s Kitchen, on a busy corner in uptown Charlotte, you might overlook one sign that this is no ordinary restaurant. High on a wall of the foyer is a Bible verse, Proverbs 19:17, written in neat, black script: “He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given.”

The bankers and office workers who crowd the restaurant at lunch and dinner are here for Aunt Beaut’s panfried chicken and classic Southern-style vegetables cooked with a modern, healthier twist — without the fatback. They come back for the cornbread plump with kernels, the banana pudding layered with homemade vanilla wafers, the shrimp and grits.

Where you FEAST TO FEED SOMEBODY.

We’re a not for profit restaurant serving up southern cuisine made with fresh, local ingredients from right here in our community. And the proceeds go back to the community, helping to feed those in need. So, come on in. Because when you dine, the whole community thrives.

The King’s Kitchen.

The King’s Kitchen is a not for profit restaurant that fuels economic vitality, growth in Charlotte’s Center City and the greater metropolitan area creating jobs and supporting community development. First, the restaurant will employ a segment of our community that is considered unemployable, from people who have come out of prison and rehab, to youths that are at high risk from dropping out of school. Once employed, they will receive training to run a full service restaurant from the front of the house to the back. They will also receive leadership and spiritual training as well in order to gain the life skills that are necessary to be successful in today’s job market. Secondly, the profits from The King’s Kitchen will provide funds and/or foods for established feeding centers in the community to provide meals for those in need. Designed to operate profitably, all profits will be used to help feed the hungry here in Charlotte, surrounding areas and in other parts of the world.
