“Transfer Co., which occupies a 50,000 square-foot space at 500 E. Davie St., will open its doors for a special soft opening event Thursday, December 20th from 6 to 10 p.m. Che Empanadas, Locals Seafood Market and Oyster Bar and the Transfer Co. bar will be open and serving.

Che Empanadas Chef Anabel Rossbach's Argentine-style baked empanadas, handcrafted from historic recipes that feature local and organic ingredients, were previously only available for catered events or at home delivery. This will be Che Empanadas first brick-and-mortar location.

"Everyone who is apart of this project is so deeply passionate about the food they are bringing to the the table," General Manager Nick Neptune said Wednesday.

The space is still in the process of construction. As more tenants are open, there will be more soft opening events and pop-up events. The official grand opening of the first phase of the project isn't expected until early January.

The food hall is part of a three-phase development in the area. The first phase, The Ware, features 15 townhomes available for purchase now. The second phase of the building, which will house Videri Chocolate, Burial Beer and a yet-to-be revealed smokehouse, will open a few months later.

The final phase will be a 16,000-square-foot commercial building that will house the Saxapahaw General Store grocery and cafe.”
