Chevalo and Monique Wilsondebriano
After the heartbreak of the 9/11 attacks Chevalo & Monique needed a change. Upon relocating to Charleston, South Carolina, Chevalo, a former FDNY Medic and 9/11 First Responder, and Monique, a former Big Box Retail Manager, decided to combine their mutual love for hamburgers and debut a special homemade "burger marinade" at a BBQ cookout at their new home. The response was so overwhelming for their juicy burgers that they decided to turn it into a business. From there, Charleston Gourmet Burger Company was born!
