Moe’s Southwest Grill and sandwich chain Which Wich are among the businesses that will open in a new building at SayeBrook Town Center off S.C. 544 near U.S. 17 Bypass.
AT&T, Massage Envy and The Joint chiropractic place will round out the lineup in the new building under construction off S.C. 544 near SayeBrook’s entrance, said Rox Pollard, vice president and principal, manager of retail services for Colliers International, the firm handling leasing in SayeBrook.
All the businesses are expected to be open by the spring, though more specific opening dates aren’t yet available, Pollard said.
Crews will be wrapping up construction on the new building by mid-November.
Moe’s said earlier this year it planned to open in SayeBrook, and it will have indoor seating as well as an outdoor patio.
This will be Which Wich’s first location along the Grand Strand. The chain features more than 50 types of customizable sandwiches, as well as vegetarian options and several sandwiches with less than 400 calories each. The eatery also serves house chips, shakes and cookies.
“They are really a rapidly expanding national chain,” Pollard said.
More stores are in the works for SayeBrook, which debuted in July 2012 with Target, Marshall’s and Petco.
Pollard is on the hunt for clothing retailers and other stores and restaurants to fill the development’s next phase, SayeBrook Parkway Shops which will line the entrance road toward Target. Construction is expected to start on the first 20,000-square-foot building next year.
Pollard said he’s already in talks with some national fashion retailers, but said he couldn’t name them until later.
The S.C. 544 area is booming with new commercial growth. A Wal-Mart Neighborhood Marketplace, the chain’s smaller grocery store, plans to open in early summer in Ocean Lakes Village at S.C. 544 and U.S. 17 Business.
Pollard said his team received a lot of interest from retailers wanting to be part of SayeBrook because of the large number of not only tourists, but permanent residents in the area, including those along S.C. 544, S.C. 707 and U.S. 17 Bypass.
Pollard also is looking for a restaurant to move into the former Atlanta Bread Co. building off S.C. 544, saying that officials want “something unique, to offer something new and different to that part of the beach.” Atlanta Bread Co. closed there earlier this year.
