Crave Hot Dogs And Barbecue Planned For Wilmington Area

By Jessica Maurer, posted May 8, 2018
Crave Hot Dogs and Barbecue, a franchise launched early this year, has announced plans for its first North Carolina location to open in Wilmington by the end of the year.

The fast casual concept, created by Samantha and Sal Rincione, specializes in grilled all-beef hot dogs, bratwursts and other sausages with a wide array of toppings. Barbecue sandwiches and sliders are also on the menu, along with sides such as baked fries and coleslaw.
Crave will also features a self-serve beer wall, with 24 beers on tap, as well as wine and cider. Customers can pour as much or as little as they like, paying by the ounce.

Local franchisees and former Marines Wayne and Laura Decker have secured the rights to Crave for all of North Carolina and South Carolina, and are currently in negotiations for potential properties in Wilmington.

The Pointe at Barclay and Ogden Market Place are among the top contenders, according to Wayne Decker. The Deckers' son, Geoff, will serve as general manager for the Wilmington location.

“We are extremely excited to be a part of this innovative brand,” Wayne Decker said. “We believe that the customers are looking for something unique and different, and Crave offers just that. It will not only provide customers with a great food and drink selection but a fantastic experience as well.”
