Casual and fun, pop in for a tasty bite and a refreshing libation!

SPREAD loves to collaborate with local businesses to create unique one-time events. These pop-ups are a great way to experience what John and the team have to offer in a more casual setting. Whether it’s snacks or street food at a local bar, or pairings at your favorite wine shop, be on the lookout for these stellar events!

Planning these pop-ups allows us the opportunity to partner with other creative minds and to explore all aspects of North Carolina influenced cuisine. Through collaboration, we challenge ourselves to grow, and refine our vision. The food and beverage industry in North Carolina is thriving, and we love our place within the community.


An evening to remember. An unforgettable party.

SPREAD is a full service events company. In addition to our more casual community pop-ups, we also plan formal, all-inclusive, ticketed parties. Whether it’s a New Years Eve black tie affair or a solstice party at the farm, we are here to provide you with an unforgettable experience. By focusing on the finer, more elegant side of beverage and cuisine, SPREAD showcases its ability to handle all aspects of any event.

Check out our calendar and get your name on our email list to keep up with what we are planning. You won’t want to miss any of our events, no matter the size or occasion. We look forward to seeing you at the next one!


We love to collaborate!

We worked with SPREAD to do a fun pop up event at our little wine shop. The food, aside from being beautifully presented and delicious, was undeniably crowd pleasing. If you’re looking for well-made, good-looking, local food options, don’t sleep on SPREAD! The menu was original without being inaccessible. The staff at SPREAD was efficient and great with our customers, too. They are incredibly easy to work with. We can’t wait to have them back in our space!

John Upsal created an amazing multi-course dinner experience, taking guests across the state from the mountains to the sea with each plate. Our SPREAD dinner was a great success!
Large groups may share very different tastes and preferences in their food, but John created a wonderful menu that thrilled everyone! Our experience with SPREAD was amazing and we recommend them for events large or small.
