A New Concept from the Owners of Narwhal’s Crafted

(St. Charles, MO) February 11, 2021 – Streets of St. Charles, already home to Narwhal’s Crafted, announces the opening of Loaded Elevated Nachos, a fun new food concept from Narwhal’s owners Brad Merten and Brandon Holzhueter.

Loaded is the newest addition to 1450 Beale Street, the building that houses Narwhal’s Crafted, Yoga Six and the recently opened Napoli III. The 1,400 SF space has a fun, upbeat atmosphere that feels much like a foodtruck without wheels. These are not your average nachos. The menu boasts 10 different elevated nacho dishes that aim to change the perception of what people think nachos can be. Customers will find varieties like Marty’s Reuben, Jamaican Jerk and Street Corn along with a couple of dessert nacho options. If you’re looking for a healthier choice, most dishes on the menu can be ordered on a bed of grains or lettuce.

“Loaded has been a long time in the making, and we’re beyond excited to finally be opening up at Streets of St. Charles,” stated co-owner Brandon Holzhueter. “Having Narwhal’s next door, we know this area well and we think the Loaded concept is going to be a perfect fit – adding a fast-casual option to the development while maintaining the level of quality that brings patrons to Streets of St. Charles,” stated Holzhueter.

Not only is Loaded directly adjacent to Narwhal’s, customers don’t even have to leave their frozen drinks to enjoy a plate of nachos. The space features a convenient pass-through window between the businesses. Co-owner Brad Merten stated, “Loaded is a great ‘food partner’ to Narwhal’s, and the pass-through window is a nice bonus. Our goal has always been to pleasantly surprise people with Loaded, and now that showtime is finally here, we couldn’t be more excited.”

Streets of St. Charles recently announced the additions of Buff City Soap and Sauce on the Side to the development later this Spring. Loaded Elevated Nachos is now open at 1450 Beale Street, Suite 130.
