Non-Profit restaurant opens in Uptown Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Opening a restaurant in our current economic climate can be risky, but the recession is all the more reason for The King's Kitchen.

Owner and Chef Jim Noble says the idea came from his wife. Open a non-profit restaurant to raise money for the poor and use the business to minister to those less fortunate.

The King's Kitchen serves up-scale southern food in its Trade Street location. Every dollar that doesn't go to operating the restaurant, goes to local food pantries and homeless ministries. Noble says soon the business will employ people from those homeless shelters.

Noble says the workers will go through a training program to learn the restaurant business. Workers will also learn the word of God at the King's Kitchen.

You can eat good food at the King's Kitchen, all while supporting a good cause. That's some pretty good news!
