About this event

Jennifer and her husband Sam observed the Charleston area's need for a healthy, fast casual dining establishment and began to dream up their plans for what is now “Verde;” a place where wholesome food and fast food weren't mutually exclusive. For nearly two years the couple scouted the perfect space, finally settling on their first location, at 347 King Street. On October 23rd, 2011 they opened the doors of Verde and haven't looked back since. They opened their second location in Mount Pleasant in June 2013 and have since opened a total of four Charleston area locations.

Jennifer and Sam are proud to be part of the Charleston community and work to serve food, people, and this community in a way that’s good for all. They reside downtown with their little girl Millie and dog Shadow Ann and can be found daily slinging greens in their stores.
