Black-owned businesses helping build University City’s future

Feb 5, 2021 | Economic Development, Events

Check out Black-owned restaurants, shops and services in University City

Black-owned businesses in University CityCharlotte Five, an online publication of The Charlotte Observer, recently published a list of more than 100 Black-owned restaurants and other businesses across Charlotte. In honor of Black History Month, we have culled through the full list for those businesses located in University City.

We hope you will find both lists helpful. As the Charlotte Five article notes, the pandemic has forced some businesses to close or change their hours and services, so call or visit their websites before visiting.

But DO visit. Tomorrow’s vibrant University City is being built by our small businesses today!
