After 40 years in business, Anntony’s Caribbean Café to close last location | WFAE 90.7

For the past 40 years, Charlotteans have enjoyed the succulent made-from-scratch Caribbean dishes at various Anntony’s Caribbean Café restaurants.

Owner Tony Martin, a native of Guyana, has had nine locations in the region at times, including restaurants in uptown, Lake Wylie, Asheville and Hickory. But over the years, he pared it down to one at W.T. Harris on West Sugar Creek Road that opened 20 years ago.

Now, as Martin prepares to close his last cafe, WFAE’s Gwendolyn Glenn visited his restaurant to take a look back on his life and career thus far. Listen to their conversation at the audio link above.
