Charlie Graingers of THe Carolinas, Our home!

The Charlie Graingers franchise opportunity is continuing to expand throughout North and South Carolina. Charlie Graingers is a Wilmington-based franchise restaurant that specializes in hot dogs, brisket, and bbq. Our story dates back to 1939 and after 75 years in the business, we are ready to expand. 

Charlie Graingers has teamed up with Disabella Partners LLC to develop the Charlie Graingers concept further in North and South Carolina. Over the next 10 years, we plan to build up to 100 locations in the Carolinas.  

North and South Carolina serve as a national and international hotspot for banking, technology and innovation. The capital of North Carolina, Raleigh has emerged recently as a focal city for innovation and entrepreneurship. The area attracts millions of visitors from across the country and around the world each year. 

The Charlie Graingers restaurant concept is the perfect concept for the Carolinas. We specialize in serving a quick, affordable lunch - 16 hot dogs, 5 sandwiches. Our stores are only open from 11am - 6pm, allowing our franchisees an easy-to-manage business. Our clientele has no socio-economic barriers. Our Wilmington restaurant often sees Mayor Bill Saffo sitting between a group of construction workers and Congressman Thom Goolsby.

Charlie Graingers plans to put up to 100 locations in North and South Carolina. If Charlie Graingers sounds interesting to you, we encourage you to reach out to us to get more information. Use the form at right to contact us or email a member of our franchise development staff at
