Groucho’s of Huntersville is owned by JD Gibbs and his wife Melissa. Melissa is a native of Columbia, SC where Groucho’s Deli originated in 1941, and she introduced her family to the “Groucho’s Famous” subs and sauces she grew up craving. Groucho’s was equally well received by JD and their four boys and they went out of their way to visit Groucho’s restaurants whenever possible. The idea to open a Groucho’s of their own arose from a desire to create a successful business to provide ongoing revenue for local non-profit organizations. 100% of all proceeds generated by Groucho’s Deli of Huntersville will be donated to several local charities close to the heart of the Gibbs family and others that will be rotated on a quarterly basis. They hope that customers will embrace the idea of giving back to their community while enjoying the best specialty subs, sandwiches, and salads the South has to offer!
“What could be easier or more rewarding than enjoying a delicious meal while effortlessly making a donation to a worthy cause?” said Melissa Gibbs. “And with food this good, why eat anywhere else?!”

This new location will be open Monday thru Saturday 11am-9pm, and on Sundays for private parties.
