New Arby's under construction in North Augusta

A new Arby’s restaurant is under construction on Knox Avenue in North Augusta.


The store will open in mid-September near Kroger, said Miguel Diaz, director of operations for Trefz & Trefz, which operates six local Arby’s stores.

This will be their seventh Arby’s restaurant in the area.

“North Augusta is a prime location right now. We’ve always wanted to go there,” Mr. Diaz said.

The 3,200-square-foot restaurant will have about 25 employees.

Trefz & Trefz will begin hiring in mid-to-late August, Mr. Diaz said.
