A second location in Columbia for the Famous Toastery is expected to be open for business on Main Street by March/April 2018 time frame. Not only will this new location have online ordering, catering, and delivery, but a big city “Grab-and-Go” concept. Freshly made wraps, salads, quiche, sandwiches and many other options will be ready for you without waiting or hassle.
The Famous Toastery began in Huntersville, N.C. back in 2005 with best friends Brian Burchill and Robert Maynard. When Bryan and Robert opened their first breakfast spot with a fresh-made concept, they had no idea what they started. Never compromising fresh ingredients or amazing service, the demand for Famous Toastery kept growing. Before they knew it they had three locations serving up fresh cooked-to-order food. In 2013 the company evolved into a franchise, and now have 7 corporate stores and 20 franchise locations with a promise of more to come, including a third location possible in Columbia.
We spoke with Maynard and learned he and his best friend saw fresh, never frozen, and made-to-order breakfast and lunch were badly needed in the Carolinas.
“When we got this thing started, we saw something in the big city markets in New York and wanted to bring that big city vibe to the Carolinas. But more than that we really want to just brighten peoples day, as corny as that sounds,” Maynard said.
