The now-previous owners of Caviar & Bananas Greenville, Kris and Margaret Furniss, released a statement Saturday, Oct. 6 saying they have released ownership of the Charleston-based restaurant and bodega’s location at 1 N. Laurens St., Greenville.
The Furnisses will retain the Market Street Charleston location. Other Caviar & Bananas restaurants under the new ownership are a second Charleston location as well as a location in the Charleston Airport. The Nashville location closed June 29, but will be reopening, according to a Craigslist ad for employees.
New York City-based Feenix Venture Partners, a venture capital firm, now lists Caviar & Bananas as a partner on its website and no word yet if this ownership change means any changes for the Greenville location. A phone number registered to Blake Anthony of The Eleven Group is listed with the Nashville Craigslist ad.
“It is a bittersweet day for us as we announce that after ten amazing years we are passing the torch of Caviar & Bananas on to a new set of inspired leaders to see it in to its next phase. We are so grateful to all of those that we have been able to serve and to all of our employees for their hard work and support through the years and in letting us build our dream in to a reality. We are excited for what this change means for the future of C&B. The Market Street location will remain in the hands of the original ownership,” Margaret Furniss said.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more details are released.
