Yafo Kitchen

Meet Chef Shai Fargian

by | Jul 6, 2023

Show Notes:

In this episode, I sit down with Shai Fargian. Shai is the co-founder and Chef-partner of YAFO Kitchen.

Yafo Kitchen is a fast-casual Middle Eastern street food concept that was launched in SouthPark back in 2016 and has since grown to include locations in Dilworth and Plaza Midwood.

In partnership with one of Charlotte’s most prolific and successful restaurateurs, Shai developed the Yafo Kitchen concept by drawing on a lifetime of experiences in the world of creative culinary pursuits, as well as a structured military and management background.

I’m not going to try to summarize this conversation any further. Shai’s journey is just so remarkable, I could go on and on, but as always I think it’s best that I let my guest share the story. 

My friends, I’m so honored to bring you this episode. Thanks for following The Best of Charlotte podcast, enjoy getting to know Chef Shai Fargian, and the story of Yafo Kitchen.
