Aberdeen is rounding the corner on becoming a foodie hub. The 15,000-square-feet piece of prime downtown Aberdeen real estate on the corner of W. Main St. and S. Poplar St. that has sat vacant for years has been purchased by Johnny and Lindsay Cauthen, who plan to turn it into Junction Hall, a two-story indoor food hub.
“At Junction Hall, our mission is to create a vibrant culinary experience that pays homage to the rich history and diverse flavors of the North Carolina Sandhills,” the couple wrote in a press release. “As a future gathering hub in Moore County, we aspire to be the go-to destination where residents and visitors alike can come together to enjoy exceptional food and crafted beverages while forging meaningful connections.”
The development team is Hern & Co., LLC, a Pinhurst based company that formed a year ago.
The space is being designed by Square Feet Studio, of Atlanta. An opening is set for 2025.
