Jimmy & Louisa Kleto
Jimmy and Louisa Kleto opened Central Coffee Company in 2009. Jimmy was born and raised in Charlotte to first-generation Greek parents. His grandparents came to Charlotte in the 1950s from Agrinion, Greece. The coffee shop is housed in a building his grandparents own, two blocks away from their first home in Charlotte. Central Coffee Company is a full service coffee and espresso shop.
