Poogan’s Southern Kitchen, an offshoot of Charleston’s Poogan’s Porch, has signed on to occupy a 6,500-square-foot space at Mauldin’s Bridgeway Station.
The location, featuring a 500-square-foot outdoor dining area, will be Poogan’s Southern Kitchen’s third location to serve up buttermilk fried chicken and shrimp and grits following the establishment of a Summerville location in 2020 and a slated 2022 opening in Forest Acres.
Poogan’s Hospitality Group also operates Poogan’s Porch, Poogan’s Smokehouse and Poogan’s Courtyard in downtown Charleston.
“We are extremely pleased to join with the remarkable leadership at Poogan’s Southern Kitchen to bring this distinguished group from Charleston to the Upstate,” Phil Hughes, president and founder of Hughes Investments Inc., said in a news release. “Their outstanding, long-term history combined with the quality and excitement they will bring to BridgeWay further expands our goal of providing the region with the highest quality and most fun places to eat, live, work and shop — and just have fun. We look forward to welcoming this distinguished Charleston establishment to BridgeWay Station and further expanding this unique community for the enjoyment of everyone.”
