CLT Black Owned

Founded in 2020 by four friends and native Charlotteans, CLT Black Owned is a response to the gap in representation of the city's Black-owned businesses. CBO seeks to introduce Charlotte consumers to these businesses in ways previously unavailable, while also providing Black business owners new opportunities to collaborate, grow and develop their brands.


Supporting Black-owned businesses is a movement, not a moment. It's a lifestyle.
