Charleston-based East Bay Deli will be opening a location in Columbia on Main Street.
Mike Edwards of Newmark Grubb Wilson Kibler represented the tenant in the lease of the 4,100-square-foot space at 1426 Main, next door of the Columbia Marriott.
Jennifer Burgess, director of human resources for East Bay Deli, said renovations will start soon, with plans to open by the end of September.
“We are thrilled to finally be coming to the Columbia area,” Burgess said. “We have been working with Mike for quite a while to find the perfect spot for our first location.”
East Bay Deli, which opened its first store in 2001, has five locations in the Charleston area and one each in Florence and North Myrtle Beach. The New York-style deli with a Southern twist has been voted Charleston’s best deli 13 years in a row.
The Columbia location will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as beer and wine. Online ordering, delivery and catering will also be available.
