Meet Cory Wilkins. Cory is the founder of DailySpecialCLT, a local restaurant blog highlighting great restaurants in the Charlotte, NC area, along with Black Guys Cook, a recipe focused Youtube channel and TikTok account.
Originally from a small town in Georgia, Cory has been in Charlotte since 2017 and grew a vast interest for the food and restaurant scene in the city. He then launched DailySpecialCLT - a website and food blog dedicated to shedding light on all the great food and drink specials around Charlotte. In one centralized location, you can search for specials in Charlotte based on the day of the week, neighborhood, or food/drink item that you're looking for. To pair with the website, DailySpecialCLT also has a great Instagram presence featuring many great local restaurants that you may not typically see.
Cory is also the creator of Black Guys Cook - a recipe focused Youtube channel and TikTok account. On this channel the focus is simple, yet unique dishes that anyone can achieve in their own home.
- DailySpecialCLT Food Photography - Cory also is a local food photographer. He handles food photography for several local restaurants for social media, websites, and has even had several photos placed on billboards around Charlotte.
- EatBlkCLT - Cory is also part of the Eat Black Charlotte team - a website and Instagram account dedicated to uplifting and shining light on many of the Black owned restaurants in Charlotte that so often get overlooked. The inaugural Eat Blk CLT restaurant week was a huge success with a visit from the mayor of Charlotte and even national media attention.
