West Columbia, SC (Paul Kirby) A new Taco Bell is being built in the 2300 block of Augusta Road (Hwy. 1). This is near the Wal-Mart and is an out-parcel of the property that includes the Bi-Lo and Muv Fitness in the City of West Columbia. The building pad has already been started and the erection of the actual building should begin any day.
According to Anna Huffman with the City of West Columbia, Venture Construction is the general contractor that’s working on the project. They have multiple offices across the southeast and specialize in the construction of restaurants. Huffman said that the permits the city issued are for a 2052 square feet building that will seat 40.
The expected completion date of the business is not known. You can watch for the notice of the chain's hiring process and dates they will begin taking applications as the building gets further along.
