White Duck Taco Shop, one of Asheville’s most popular taco joints, is looking to open a Charlotte location.
Negotiations are still underway and plans haven’t been finalized yet, but Ben Mixson, owner of White Duck Taco Shop, said they’ve been looking into a location in Charlotte for years.
“It’s just a couple hours from Asheville, close enough for us to be able to be involved and get it right,” Mixson said.
White Duck has been in expansion mode as of late. There are now locations in five cities across North and South Carolina and Tennessee, and a sixth location is set to open in Greenville, S.C. soon.
Mixson would not comment on what neighborhoods are under consideration. But NoDa would appear to be a natural fit. We wouldn’t be surprised to see movement on a White Duck location there by the end of the year.
Mark Miller of Lat Purser & Associates, Inc. said he was unable to share who was interested in its properties in NoDa, though he said to check back in the next few months.
