Post Construction Update: Grinning Mule Restaurant

In the middle of 2019, Carolina Contracting and Investments started on the renovation and construction of a one of a kind non-profit restaurant. The construction site near the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood included a preexisting structure that was originally a gas station back in 1946. Our skilled team worked diligently to get the project completed on time with top quality results. The Grinning Mule was ready to open to the public in early 2020 but, then the coronavirus pandemic struck. 

On March 17, 2020 at 5:00 P.M. is when the Grinning Mule had originally planned its grand opening. Unfortunately, that same day and at that same time the order came through for all dine-in restaurants to temporarily close to slow the spread of the virus. The good news was that the non for profit was able to make the best of a bad situation. Since they had the staff and food on hand the team decide to prepare and donate meals to the community. The free food was given to another local non-profit called One7 Ministries who helps area refugees.

It is like what they say, “When life makes you lemons, make lemonade!” –or in this case maybe a cocktail? The Grinning Mule is now open and serving the public! All cocktails are $11 even when you order top-shelf liquors. Check them out online and order up to show your support for this local business.
