Coming Soon: Abbott’s Frozen Custard (Greer)


Here’s some news for all you Rochester, NY  transplants! An Abbott’s Frozen Custard franchise will be opening up in downtown Greer this fall. It will be opened up by a local businessman who grew up eating Abbott’s and now wants the rest of us to partake in it’s creamy yummy goodness!

Coming to Greer, at the former Dixie Shoe Shop at 119 E. Poinsett Street, is Abbott’s first franchise in the Carolinas and Georgia. Permitting and construction is fast-tracked to have the store open in time for Oktoberfest (Oct. 3). That appears unlikely but Khoury said he may be able to offer the product on the street during the festival.

Recently Closed: Ford’s Oyster House (Greenville)


Somewhat older news but kept forgetting to put it up here. Ford’s Oyster House that was near Falls Park downtown closed up about 2-3 weeks ago. Not many details on why they closed but a few comments I read were suggesting that a possible menu change or environment change, etc might have contributed to its demise.

What’s interesting is that they were/are owned by the same group that’s opening up The Playwright restaurant. Maybe cutting losses on this one to get the new restaurant up and going?
