Cartwright Food Hall to open this fall in downtown Greer
Renovations have begun in Historic Downtown Greer on space that will house Cartwright Food Hall, an artisanal lifestyle dining concept.
Located at 215 Trade Street, Cartwright Food Hall will include local eateries and restaurants, along with local food retailers. It will feature the concept of cross-meal ordering, where different meals are enjoyed in a shared seating area.
Founded by Val and Elaine Kang and Ben and Caroline Godwin, the new venture is scheduled to open in late Fall 2020.
“Cartwright Food Hall was founded by a group of friends who have a passion for food, family, and community,” the Godwins said. “Our experience spans eight years in commercial property management, as well as event planning and marketing.”
Renovated space that will house the new venture includes a street-front building and connected carriage house built in 1904, which previously housed a livery, stables, restaurant, hardware store, gallery and museum.
The name Cartwright, a historical term for “a maker of carts”, was inspired by the building’s previous use as a livery stable and carriage house.
Cartwright Food Hall will house seven restaurants including Origami Doughnuts, Trade Street Taproom, and Papi’s Tacos, marking an additional location for Origami Doughnuts and Papi’s Tacos.
“The completion of the CenterG streetscape project in Greer Station has made our downtown a regional destination for great shopping and dining,” Greer Mayor Rick Danner said in a press release. “It is a pleasure to welcome Cartwright Food Hall as one of the outstanding businesses in the City of Greer’s central business district, and I look forward to the opening of its unique venue and the exciting new dining options it brings to Greer Station.”
