K & W REDS TEAM
Around 1937, the original investors (T.K. Knight and his brothers-in-law, Thomas, Kenneth and William Wilson) decided to change the coffee shop’s name. Using their initials, they created the name K&W Restaurant. With his original one third interest in the company and his recognition of the company's potential, Grady T. Allred increased his share of ownership. In1941, Allred became K&W’s sole owner after acquiring the last remaining share from Thomas Wilson.
It wasn’t long before Allred involved his family in the new acquisition. His wife, Vivian, worked as a cashier and Allred’s brothers, Ted and Coy, joined the business as managers. Soon, a second K&W location opened in nearby High Point. Both restaurants flourished until December of 1951, when a fire forced the downtown Winston-Salem location to close for several months. After extensive repairs and restoration, the restaurant reopened in 1952 with a slight twist - it was now a restaurant/cafeteria combination.
Today, K&W Cafeterias is still owned and operated by the Allred family. K&W is headquartered in Winston-Salem, N.C. and has 33 locations: 23 in North Carolina, 5 in South Carolina, 4 in Virginia, and 1 in West Virginia. They are a big supporters of charities in the ares they serve and continue to offer a large variety of great home-cooked food at very low prices.
