Cook-Out will be located at 1353 Wade Hampton Blvd. It will be flanked on one side by Dill Creek Common shops.
The Goodwill Store will sit aside the restaurant. The house on the property will be razed.
Cook-Out will be easily identified with its bold color scheme. The Greer store will represent the most recent store design, which was first launched in Roanoke, Va., late last year.
The restaurant’s menu specializes in grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, North Carolina barbecue, chicken sandwiches, wraps, sides and a myriad of milkshake flavors.
H. Mack Summey, representing the North Carolina owners, father-son Morris and Jeremy Reaves, met with the Greer Planning Advisory Committee today.
“I am real excited about this project and glad to have it here,” said Ruthie Helms, of the City Codes department.
Don Hollomon, City Engineer, told Summey, “Plugging that building in that narrow strip, I have some concerns that we may run into a problem with the drive-thrus. Those bigger pickup trucks are wide.”
The restaurant will take up two parcels of land zoned C-3 (commercial highway). It is sandwiched between the Goodwill Store and the Dill Creek Common shops.
A house on the property will likely be razed, said Doris Forest, who brokered the transaction. “The two by fours in the house has rotted and it wouldn’t pass inspection now. I don’t think it will be moved. It’s best that it be torn down.”
The Spartanburg store, 1996 E. Main Street, was its first out-of-state venture in 2010. The Greenville store is at 1513 Poinsett Highway.
Cook-Out, founded in 1989 and headquartered in Thomasville, N.C., has over 100 restaurants in the Carolinas, Virginia and Tennessee.
