Plans For a Second Location Only One Block Away. Yep.
Creole Nouvelle Cajun Kitchen celebrated its grand opening back in February of this year and already has plans for a second location.
With overwhelming success (food is good), the 1000 square foot space at 123 Luckie Street is ideal for their lunchtime take-out crowd, but not for much more. The solution? Owner Tre Brown has her eye on restaurant space a block away, looking to lease vacant real estate through Matlock Advertising and Public Relations at 107 Luckie Street.
With seating for 200, the new location adjacent to Matlock will open under the Creole Nouvelle name in conjunction with the existing Cajun kitchen.
Each space will serve separate functions: dine-in at the new location and take-out for lunch as well as catering at the original.
Double overhead (to begin with) has us questioning this move. Parties on both sides suggest that money invested in renovations and inexpensive rent make operation at both locations feasible.
A lease has not been signed though sources from both Matlock and Creole Nouvelle have indicated chances are good that a deal will be cut soon.
Can a start-up survive with two of the same concepts within a block of each other, or should Creole Nouvelle add the recipe for failure to their menu? Tells us your thoughts (cause we've got a few select).
