Famous Toastery, a popular regional chain of breakfast-lunch restaurants, has signed a lease for its first Southwest Charlotte location in the Ayrsley community of Steele Creek.
Famous Toastery will occupy 3,062 square feet of retail space located at 2127 Ayrsley Town Blvd., in the Arcade Building in Ayrsley. The space was previously occupied by Rooney’s Market and is located next to Carolina Beer Temple and across from Piedmont Social House. This location is set to open in Spring 2019.
“Famous Toastery chose Ayrsley due to the strong daytime population, walkability from nearby offices, apartments and hotels and a strong co-tenancy that complements our restaurant,” said Robert Maynard, founder. “Jason and Michele Serkin have proven to be an exceptional operator and we are excited to have them open a franchise in this booming part of town.”
This will be the Serkins’ fifth Famous Toastery location, and first in Charlotte, in addition to locations in Indian Land, Tega Cay, Rock Hill and Lake Wylie.
William Hodges, vice president and broker-in-charge at New Forum, represented the landlord on the lease transaction. Josh Beaver of The Nichols Company represented Famous Toastery.
Famous Toastery signs on the heels of WorldWide HealthStaff Solutions, Robins & Morton, & GiGi’s Playhouse, who all signed leases in Ayrsley in Q4 2018. Two Silver Crescent, an 88,000 sf Class-A office building, broke ground in December 2018, and is set to deliver in Fall 2019.
