Carolina One Real Estate
Ellis Grossman, a Charleston native, started his professional career in the restaurant business. While this was not his original plan, he realized he had a passion for the restaurant business, particularly in obtaining real estate and making a profitable enterprise.
Ellis attended the Culinary Institute of Charleston at Trident Technical College. After earning his degree in culinary arts and business technology, Ellis chose to take a different approach than most and jumped directly into the fast food industry. He was Director of Operations for Bojangles and later Vice President, while also serving as Chairman of the Board at the Culinary Institute of Charleston where he also taught culinary classes.
In 2010, inspired by the need to bring healthy ingredients to the fast food business, Ellis started Black Bean Co. Ellis carried his love of fresh ingredients directly into Black Bean Co.’s overall mission. While operating five restaurants, Ellis was farming 35 acres of land. He sold his harvest to many restaurants in Charleston with the help of Limehouse Produce. Whether it be ingredients made fresh daily, compostable packaging, or the green decor, Ellis finds that it’s important to extend his knowledge and experience of what sustainability can truly be.
After Black Bean Co., Ellis wanted to continue his mission of helping people in a new industry. In 2017, Ellis chose the path of Real Estate with a mission to help members of the community with their current real estate needs, but more importantly, their real estate investment goals of the future. Ellis seeks to build lifetime relationships and give the highest rated service to all of his clients, customers, vendors and the people within the community. He is eager to show you what makes the Charleston Area the number one city in the world.
