Join us as we take a look at the unique small businesses of the Carolina’s. These are Carolina businesses that you need to know about! As part of our Carolina Travels small business series, we are chatting with Chef Longo, the owner of The Burrito Shak located in Hampstead, North Carolina.
What is your business name?
How did your business get started?
I’ve been a chef for over ten years and in restaurants for over 20. I’ve wrote many menus along the way for restaurant ideas. Burrito Shak menu was actually written over 10 years ago. My wife and I noticed that Hampstead was in desperate need for something fresh and family friendly, so Burrito Shak was born. – Chef Longo

Does your business have a busy season or time of year that attracts more customers? When would be the perfect time for a customer to check out your business?
