Repairs underway at Columbia's Mugs Up Drive-In
An historic Columbia Drive-In was one step closer to re-opening on Thursday.
The owners of the Mugs Up Drive-In shut down their business last month after a food delivery truck caused some damage to the restaurant’s roof and awning.
Dedicated Mug Ups Drive-In customers wanted to know when they could get their hamburgers and french fries again.
Owner Brandon Kewley said very soon.
Kewley said he and his cousin Jason laid new floors in the partially collapsed building.
Workers cleaned and renovated the kitchen.
Kewley was waiting on construction workers to fix his building’s roof and awning.
Kewley said things are coming together for his reopening and he was still waiting on official date.
Mugs Up has operated on Orange Street since 1955.
Kewley said his family tradition will carry on and the mug will rise again.
