Chain restaurants have their place in the order of everyone’s life. Sometimes the comfort of the familiar is just what’s needed, and the stability and consistency of chain eating is just what you’re looking for. But you don’t have to look for a national chain when there are plenty of local ones that originated right here in the Midlands and continue to serve up the usual just the way you like it.
Some of our local chains have been embedded in the community for decades, such as Rush’s, Zesto’s, Maurice’s, Lizard’s Thicket, and the Kingsman, to name a few, and these establishments have become a family affair passed down generation after generation. The success these local restaurants have experienced have enabled them to open multiple locations around the Columbia area.
