BBQ restaurant in northeast Columbia closes

Maurice’s Piggy Park BBQ has closed one of the company’s restaurants in northeast Columbia.

The Two Notch Road location, across from Sesquicentennial Park, was not meeting sales goals, said Lloyd Bessinger, so it has been sold to a car dealership.

Bessinger says that the northeast locations on O’Neil Court and Clemson Road will remain open. Renovations have been recently completed at the Devine Street location and Piggy Park’s flagship restaurant on the Charleston Highway in West Columbia.
