Groucho's Deli to Open Thursday
Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 6:06AM

Groucho's Deli, located on the square in downtown Anderson will open Thursday at 11 a.m.

The sandwich chain was founded by Harold “Groucho” Miller in 1941 in Columbia. Miller started with a handful of original recipes for potato salad, cole slaw, and various salad and sandwich dressings, most of which were thought up during his childhood in a Philadelphia orphanage.

Groucho’s began franchising in 2000, and currently has 30 locations, including Clemson, Easley and Greenville. 

"One of the reasons we wanted to come to Anderson is we already do so much catering there," said Traywick Duffie, the owner of the Groucho franchise in Anderson. "We were spending so much time driving to Anderson, we figured we might as well open a Groucho's there."

Groucho's downtown will be open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-8 p.m.

Groucho's is part of new downtown growth and will be located next to the new home of the Anderson location of Grace Church at the corner of East Whitner Street and North McDuffie Street. 

Duffie began his deli story as a high school student in 2010 working for the first Groucho’s franchised location in Lexington, SC as a cashier/server.  A move to the upstate for college led him to work at the Groucho’s in Clemson where he served as general manager for the past five years.
