Schlotzsky's, 529 Bush River Road: May 2024   9 comments

Posted at 10:26 pm in closing















When Schlotzsky's was on Parklane I made it a point to eat lunch there once a week. It wasn't that the veggie sandwich was that good in and of itself (it was ok), but the fact that I really liked the sourdough buns, which were always a nice change from other sandwich places.

When that location closed, I noticed that some of the staff had made it to this location abuting Dutch Square, on the corner of Bush River & North Arrowwood Roads. In the event given how far it was from home, this location never made it into my regular rotation, and I probably only ate there a half dozen times over the last ten years. I liked the fact that they had a Cinnabon concession, though I think I only partook once.

Driving by lately, I had noticed that the Cinnabon part of the sign looked to have been painted over, and recent reviews suggest the place was having other problems, but it's still a shame to see them go (though Google marks the closing as temporary, so we'll see).

Looking at the other closings for the chain, it appears that at some point they dropped the word "Deli" from their name, something I just noticed.

  1. Another nail in the coffin for that area. It's sad how much that area has declined....

  2. Ted - I have similar thoughts, I always thought highly of this sandwich place, and always put it on a notch well above the Subways, Blimpies, etc. Like you said, the food/bread was distinctive and the fact they seemed to have an actual kitchen promoted variety in the menu.

    Like Quiznos and Blimpies, this may be another once well-established brand that is on decline or on its way out altogether.

    At one time, there was a Hwy 378 location for Schlotzky's, in what became "zoe's kitchen" (and is now Cava). I am pretty sure they were owned by the same people as this now-closed one. (and I think the same owners run the 378 Salsaritas)

    Note I think the Cayce/W-Columbia location is also closed.

  3. I used to eat here occasionally after work and always enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and the food was good. They had a chicken and pesto pizza that I was especially fond of.

  4. Judging by the architecture this looks like it was originally a bank branch building. Does anyone recall if that is correct?

  6. No, the Hardees was the building next door. It can still be seen in the April 2023 Google Street View.

    That Hardees used to have an all metal playground when I was growing up. It was great fun in the cooler months, but come warmer days no kid wanted to go anywhere near that thing unless they were itching to get rid of their first few layers of skin.

  7. It was definitely a bank, though I can’t recall which one. I remember when this location was being converted from the bank into Schlotzsky’s.

  9. I think this was a NBSC location until they built a new branch in the mall parking lot next to where Wells Fargo is now.
