    In uptown Charlotte The King’s Kitchen is serving up delicious Southern cuisine to its diners and a heavy helping of community support. This not-for-profit restaurant has been fueling economic vitality and growing Charlotte’s center city by employing, training and ministering to the area’s much overlooked population. The King’s Kitchen truly believes that food feeds the soul. One hundred percent of all profits made at the restaurant go towards feeding the poor in the Charlotte region as well as the nation and the world.

    With a commitment to support the Charlotte community in every aspect, Chef Noble also believes in the power of buying local and stocks The King’s Kitchen with local ingredients from the region. So when he looked at remodeling his restaurant with the best local furnishings he could find, he didn’t have to look farther than Statesville, North Carolina. The vision of The King’s Kitchen and their commitment to providing quality food and support to their local community matched our own mission.  Dixie Seating Company is proud to partner with Chef Noble and The King’s Kitchen to provide 100% American-Made seating for this outstanding organization.

  • Let's Go to Camp

    Summertime is just around the corner and for many kids that means camp season is almost here! School is ending, the weather is warming up and camps across the nation are gearing up for an adventurous summer. This year, more than 11 million kids will pack up their bags and head to various camps all over the United States. In preparation for this large number of summer-long guests, camp staff members work to plan exciting activities and coordinate housing and dining arrangements to create a memorable experience.

    Camps like Young Life, Camp Grier and High Rocks have been working with Dixie Seating Company for years to provide quality seating and tables that will stand the pressure of hundreds of campers coming back year after year. Whether it is a collection of rocking chairs used on the front porches of cabins or dining chairs for the cafeteria, these camps know that the chairs have to have two qualities: comfort and durability. The camps we have been working with love our chairs because they provide both of these qualities and they know that all Dixie Seating Company products are Made In America.

    Having a quality product that you know is hand-made is important. Selecting furniture that is commercial grade and will hold up summer after summer is what keeps the camps we work with happy.

    “We love your chairs! They stand up to thousands of teenagers using them throughout the summer!”
    - Deb Kohler, Castaway Club Young Life Camp

    Dixie Seating Company takes it one step further by providing outstanding customer service. We take the time to understand the needs of each camp that we work with so that we can help provide the most appropriate product.

    “We understand that camps operate with fixed budgets in any given year and are flexible in providing the best possible cost for the duration of the project. We accept orders early in the year and hold the shipments until the camps are ready for the products. No job is too big or too small. We ship as few as 2 chairs to as many as 1,000 chairs to any location.”

    - Dirk Baker, President Dixie Seating Company

    Another unique service we provide is the option for engraving. We have the ability to engrave any logo on our chairs which in turn builds camp spirit and makes the product uniquely branded for each camp. Services like this paired with our quality product keeps camps satisfied and gives them one less thing to worry about when they are preparing for busy summers.

    Our products are very versatile as well. Because all of our products are finished in a catalyzed varnish, this makes them ready for indoor or “covered porch” use. Camps like the versatility because it gives them options without having to buy several different types of chairs.

    “We use Dixie Seating Company chairs in our Dining Hall. We also use your chairs for an outdoor meal we refer to as Big Table. “  - Deb Kohler Camps 2

    Our rocking chairs are ideal for kids to lounge in while they relax during some downtime. Ladderback chairs with slat seats are perfect for dining rooms and are stackable offering the option to create space where it is needed when meals are not happening. The design of our chairs allow for maximum efficiency in sitting large groups in tight areas, making them perfect for high traffic areas.

    So if you are planning and prepping for this camp season, take care of your seating needs with Dixie Seating Company. For more information on our top products for camps please visit www.dixieseating.com or call 704.585.2992. Let’s Go To Camp!
