New Food Hall Begins Renovations In Downtown Greer

GREER, S.C. –  Cartwright Food Hall announced the beginning of renovations today at 215 Trade Street in Historic Downtown Greer, with an expected opening date of late Fall 2020. Val and Elaine Kang along with partners Ben and Caroline Godwin stated, “Cartwright Food Hall was founded by a group of friends who have a passion for food, family, and community. Our experience spans 8 years in commercial property management as well as event planning and marketing.”

Cartwright Food Hall is an artisanal lifestyle dining concept – not to be confused with a food court. It will feature local eateries and restaurants as well as local food retailers. Cartwright Food Hall introduces the concept of cross-meal ordering, where different meals are enjoyed in a shared seating area.

The new venture will remodel both a street-front building and connected carriage house built in 1904, which has previously housed a livery, stables, restaurant, hardware store, gallery, and museum. With a history of a livery stable and carriage house, the name Cartwright, a historical term for “a maker of carts”, was born.

Cartwright Food Hall will feature seven restaurants including Origami Doughnuts, Trade Street Taproom, and Papi’s Tacos. Both Origami Doughnuts and Papi’s Tacos are expanding and this will be an additional location for both restaurants.

“The completion of the CenterG streetscape project in Greer Station has made our downtown a regional destination for great shopping and dining.” said Mayor Rick Danner. “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.”

Vincent Cardonna of  Origami Doughnuts stated, “We are looking forward to expanding into downtown Greer with our delicious gourmet doughnuts!”

“We are proud to be part of the ambitious development of Greer” stated Ben and Caroline Godwin from Trade Street Taproom. “We are honored that we can share our love of beer, wine, and growth with a stunning city!”
