Steak 'n Shake to open in Columbia County by fall

  • Follow Local Business

The Augusta area’s first Steak ’n Shake is expected to be open by fall.

Construction of the Columbia County restaurant is to begin by June, franchise owner Preston Moss said.

“We should start construction in two weeks and be operational by the first or middle of September,” said Moss, who works for Blanchard and Calhoun Insurance.

Moss chose to build the restaurant at the corner of Jimmie Dyess Parkway and Belair Frontage Road, close to Interstate 20.

The popular burger restaurant specializes in steakburgers and hand-dipped milkshakes.

The menu also includes chili, burger melts, sandwiches, salads and desserts.

The 3,500-square-foot restaurant will remain open 24 hours, seven days a week and will serve breakfast.

It will have a drive-through window and employ about 100 people, Moss said.

The management team has already been hired and is in training, he added.

There are nearly 500 Steak ’n Shake restaurants operating in 22 states across the country.

I'd like to see a group of restaurants, including a second S & S and a Bob Evans built at I-20 and Riverwatch, near Costco.

There used to be an awesome

There used to be an awesome seafood house on Fury's Ferry Rd. near Evans-to-Locks back in the 80's. Too bad it was 30 years too early. There isn't a seafood place in the area that could have touched that place. It was called the Augusta Seahouse.
