Cook Out is a fast food privately owned restaurant chain in Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Founded in Greensboro, NC, the chain has since expanded and now has drive-thru restaurants in over seventy cities. Most locations consist of a double drive-thru and outdoor seating. The chain itself has grown in size with many locations now spread throughout Virginia [3] The company's Blacksburg, Virginia location is co-branded with Coffee Out which offers many specialty drinks and is currently the only location to be co-branded as of July 2013.

Cook Out was created by Morris Reaves.[4] He is currently the owner of the company, with his son Jeremy Reaves serving as CEO. As of August 2014 there are 143 locations. [5]

The restaurant specializes in grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, chicken sandwiches, North Carolina barbecue, and milkshakes.

The company opened its first out-of-state store in Spartanburg, South Carolina, on July 30, 2010.[6] Cook Out opened in Clemson and Orangeburg, South Carolina, in 2010. Plans are in the works for more expansion in South Carolina and Virginia.[7] At the very end of 2011, Cook Out opened restaurants in Columbia, South Carolina; Blacksburg, Virginia; and Radford, Virginia. In March 2012, Cook Out opened its first location in Lynchburg, VA. And shortly thereafter in Harrisonburg, VA.[8] 2013 saw new Cook Out locations in Georgia, and in 2014, there are plans to launch several more Georgia Cook Out locations.
