David Clark

David has spent most of his life and career in the restaurant business. After obtaining a Business Degree with a Hospitality Major from Appalachian State University, he started his career working for large hotel companies and big restaurant chains. David soon realized that he was better suited for the restaurant business, and also knew he wanted to be part of a smaller company where he could truly make a difference. He eventually settled in with a local “mom and pop” restaurant called Wild Wing Café, that at the time, had two locations; one on Hilton Head Island and one in Charleston. David moved to Charleston and ran the Charleston restaurant for the next five years. He became the restaurant’s first Director of Operations in the mid 90’s and assisted the owners in opening multiple locations throughout Charleston and South Carolina. The owners soon realized they had a franchisable concept, so David assisted them in the lengthy process to become a Franchisor. There wasn’t one aspect of the restaurant’s growth that David wasn’t part of. Aside from the normal day to day operations, David also designed thirty-five restaurants, assisted with site selection, negotiated leases and oversaw construction. The original founders sold the restaurant chain to private equity in 2012. David remained on board as the company’s VP of Development where he continued to assist with franchise sales, prototype development and operations and construction services. In 2013 David ventured off with two long-time friends and co-workers and opened a new restaurant concept, now with three locations in the Charleston area and one in Charlotte.

Choosing Commercial Real Estate as a second career was an easy decision for David. His past experiences in the commercial business sector are an asset to any individual or company seeking assistance with their real estate and business needs. David, his wife Ashley, and their three daughters reside in Mt Pleasant.
