Cook-Out is now on the clock in Greer.

Demolition of two houses and two garages at property fronting 1353 Wade Hampton Blvd., is imminent and the build out of the fast food restaurant typically takes 90 days.

That would put the earliest opening for the $1.17 million, 3,800-square-foot restaurant opening about September.

There will be only one drive-thru lane instead of the originally planned. Don Hollomon, former Greer City engineer, cautioned representatives the narrowness of the property was a concern. “I have some concerns that we may run into a problem with the drive-thrus. Those bigger pickup trucks are wide,” Hollomon said.

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

However, Greer will get the most recent store design.

It was February 2013 a representative from Cook-Out told GreerToday.com it settled on the site across from Clock Express and Tractor Supply Co. Since then, Wade Hampton Blvd. has seen an assortment of businesses that have staked a claim to the one million vehicles that average traveling the Greer corridor each month.

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

Morris and Jeremy Reaves, father-son, founded Cook-Out in 1989 in Greensboro, N.C., and have 150 stores in the Carolinas, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.

Cook-Out opened its first out-of-state store in Spartanburg in July 2010.
