The Georges arrived in September 1992, and Pasta & Provisions opened its doors at 1528 Providence Rd. on the day before Thanksgiving. Although they closed early that first day after a humorous gaffe — a customer wanted a wedge of cheese but the store had no knife with which to cut it — they had made their first $100. Within nine months, the retail shop and wholesale business had expanded; by the end of the first year, Pasta & Provisions had sold a half-million dollars, far exceeding even our own expectations. Today, Charlotte boasts a thriving culinary scene and Pasta & Provisions — now with 3 locations, including the original shop on Providence Rd. — has become a household name in town.
While our city and company continue to grow, P&P remains committed to Tommy and Debbie's original vision: to be Charlotte's neighborhood specialty grocer for quality fresh pasta, gourmet food, and wine in an unpretentious atmosphere.
