White Taco Duck Shop
RAD was hired to produce Architectural and MEP Engineering services for a +/- 3,600 SF interior upfit for the popular Asheville-based concept, White Duck Taco Shop. Located at 131 E. John St., the scope included demolition of two enclosed glass patios and repairing the wood canopy over an existing +/- 600 SF outdoor patio. RAD provided space planning for the dining areas of the restaurant while the kitchen remained with few equipment changes and modifications of the existing public restrooms to meet ADA compliance.
“[Jeff] Carter opened Charlotte’s first White Duck franchise in the Belmont neighborhood in December 2019. The longtime restaurant industry veteran holds the franchise rights for the concept in the Charlotte market.
“This won’t be the last one,” Carter says. “There’s definitely demand for it. We’re just trying to identify locations.”
He sees room for up to six more restaurants in the Charlotte market, with areas including Lake Norman, South End, Fort Mill and Belmont under consideration.”
