The Rusty Pig held a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 7 at its new Hinesville location, 762 Veterans Parkway.
The barbecue restaurant has been open since March 6; however, during this “soft-opening” phase, the restaurant worked on new systems to ensure quality food and service. The Hinesville restaurant is the third location opened by Neal Anderson and Greg Woolard as a division of Clyde’s Market and Coastal Area Stores.
The conception for Rusty Pig came when Woolard and Anderson decided to open a barbecue restaurant in their hometown of Glennville in October 2009.
The business has since expanded to Rincon and now Hinesville.
“We are excited to have Shane Burke as the general manager here and the staff that he has put together,” Anderson said. “We hope that the public will come and see friendly faces. We are excited about the months and years to come.”
Hinesville Mayor Jim Thomas and Liberty County Chamber of Commerce board member Felecia Boatwright welcomed the business to Hinesville and thanked attendees for coming.
“Every time a good company like yours comes to Hinesville, it improves the quality of life. So on behalf of the City Council and myself, we welcome you to the city of Hinesville,” Thomas said.
The Rusty Pig is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call 368-4744 or go to
