Charleston, SC — Chevalo and Monique Wilsondebriano, owners of Charleston Gourmet Burger Company, have found huge success after starting their business together three years ago on a leap of faith. The couple created a unique backyard burger recipe, and pitched it to major retailers. And the rest, well like they say is history.
Their Gourmet Burger Marinade and Sauce has grown from being a staple at local farmer’s markets to being sold in select Whole Foods Markets, Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Cost Plus World Market, Costco Wholesale Club, Military Commissaries, Sam’s Club, and several other retailers. But their latest deal lands their products in 543 Lowe’s Home Improvement stores around the country, as well as 44 select Walmart stores in the southeast and online.
“We pinch ourselves everyday,” says Monique who marvels at how far she has come throughout this journey. “I’ve been told that I would never amount to anything,” she says, reflecting on her struggle to overcome the odds. “No matter how bad of a situation I was in, I always knew that one day I would make a difference.”
Both Chevalo and Monique regularly give back by mentoring budding entrepreneurs.
