Cook-Out is scheduled to open next week, according to co-general manager Bryson Taylor. Halloween weekend is the targeted date, pending on weather.

Taylor has watched the $1.13 million, 3,800-square-foot building being built at 1353 Wade Hampton Blvd. for two months while conducting job interviews 2-5 p.m. daily. Rain the past two months set the opening back from September.

Cook-Out is sandwiched between the Goodwill Store and the Dill Creek Common Shops.

“We’re expecting this location to have one of our biggest openings in Upstate history,” Bryson said.

The Greer Cook-Out will feature the newest store prototype with seating for 80-90 inside and outdoors and a drive-thru lane. There will be 45-60 employees when fully staffed.

The hours will be 10 a.m. – 3 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. – 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.“Cook-Out has an almost cult following with high schools and college ages since we’re open later,” Bryson said. “If we do our job the product will sell itself.”

“The talent we’ve hired is very diverse,” Bryson said. “Our company offers full-time, overtime and we offer benefits.” The staff already hired is being trained at other greater Greer Cook-Outs, some as long as two months.

Bryson is working at the Boiling Springs store and travels to Greer daily to interview applicants. “I fell in love with the pace and environment,” he said.

The restaurant and grounds appeared to be weeks off in opening earlier last week. “It’s been pretty cool to see this being built from the ground up,” Bryson said. “It will be ready when (corporate) comes in and says ‘I want this done by this date.’”

Cook-Out specializes in grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, barbecue, chicken sandwiches, wraps, sides and a myriad of milkshake flavors.
