NoDa Company Store, 3221 Yadkin Avenue, might be NoDa’s best hangout. There’s ample seating, they sell food and drink (much of it local), host food trucks, and mix up some really good Sangria, as well as their signature NoDa Colada.
And the setting is possibly (probably?) the most enjoyable, inviting, tropical-themed spot in Charlotte.
On Sundays, the owners of NoDa Company Store, Scott and Joey, cook up a FREE lunch for the community! No strings attached, and they don’t ask you to buy anything, but I’ll put in a personal request that you please buy a drink. If you see a tip jar or another way to tip, please do it!
This is just a wonderful, generous thing they do for the community, and the event is meant to be a community event. It’s not a “grab and go” event. The idea is to come by, linger, sit at a big table, see old friends and meet new friends.
So, get into the spirit of it, and enjoy! Free lunch starts at 11 a.m., until it’s gone. (And it always gets gone!)
On July 25th, 2021, they’re serving up burritos with wood-grilled chicken, black beans, rice, and Haitian style Pikliz.
Follow NoDa Company Store on Facebook or Instagram for announcements about Free Sunday Lunch each week. Also, they usually make a live video on Saturday as they’re cooking, so that you can enjoy seeing what goes into the lunch, the process of cooking it, as well as an always entertaining conversation. Maybe a little neighborhood gossip.
