Olde Country Buffet on Sunset Boulevard is getting close to opening, is hiring

The final touches are being put on the Olde Country Buffet in Westland Square, 2250 Sunset Boulevard in West Columbia. The restaurant is scheduled to open soon. The owners said there have been some setbacks in the last couple of months that have delayed the opening. There was a death in the family and illness that have held things up.

Olde Country Buffet will have meeting rooms and a gift store. It occupies two suites in the strip, buildings H and I. There are hundreds of seats in the restaurant and old-sign memorabilia hanging on the walls. The store is hiring. Call 803-888-6134 to apply for a job.

The location for the new restaurant is the space that was occupied by Happy China Buffet, that is now Blossom Buffet. It’s at a spot near the I-26 and Sunset Boulevard intersection, beside Salsarita’s and Starbuck’s.

The space where the Olde Country Buffet is, is two doors down from Food Lion,
