Frank Sherrill and Fred Webber opened their first S&W Cafeteria in Charlotte, NC. The restaurant served Southern-style food at a low cost. The cafeterias opened from Washington, DC to Atlanta, GA. The company shut down in the 1990s. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
