Wilmington, NC – Charlie Graingers Hot Dogs, Brisket and BBQ, based out of Wilmington, NC, has signed a deal with Dual Energy LLC to continue their their expansion in the Southeast. Dual Energy is run by Mike Osman and Jason Blythe who are current muli-unit operators with other franchised food brands. Their new commitment will bring Charlie Graingers commitments to over 400. With new stores opening every week, Charlie Graingers aims to be a household name within a few years.


Greg George, Director of Development puts it, “We’ve been working with Mike and Jason for almost a year to get this deal done. They are experienced multi-unit operators and are the type of people that our organization needs. Their show of commitment to Charlie Graingers solidifies our beliefs in how special this brand will be.”


Dual Energy CEO, Mike Osman, “I am excited to be part of a new franchise concept and look forward to bringing Charlie Graingers to Alabama. With the great tasting food and upbeat casual dining, Charlie Graingers will be a big hit in every market.”


Charlie Graingers is focused on serving all the southern favorites in an old-school atmosphere. From their Kahn’s hot dogs to the Turkey Salad, the Charlie Graingers menu is truly unique and continues to branch away from the typical bbq joint everyday. “We are constantly working on new menu items, asking ourselves, “how can we do something traditional that’s different from the way it’s always been done?” says Founder, Louis North.


Charlie Graingers plans to continue their expansion in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana and begin to grow into the neighboring states in 2016 and 2017. They continue to actively recruit Area Representatives, Multi-Unit Operators, and Individual Store-Owners alike. For more information on new locations visit http://www.charliegraingers.com/
