Last week, Rob Cassi–owner of one of Charleston’s most popular gourmet sandwich restaurants (and one of my favorite restaurants), Persimmon Cafe–broke ground to start construction on his new location in the Summerville Center (next to the new Earth Fare at 1097 Main St), and plans to open in early Summer 2016.
Spanning 1600 square feet with 40 seats inside and 20 seats on their patio, Cassi wants the Persimmon Cafe in Summerville to be an integral part of rising culinary scene as the city continues to develop and add several new restaurants.
Persimmon Cafe plans to hire 20-25 employees, all who will get health insurance and vacation pay. This is a stand alone restaurant that, unlike the one downtown, will not share a space with a laundromat.
Persimmon Cafe in downtown Charleston is located at 226 Calhoun St. Charleston, SC 29401, and has fed the community for 3 years.
