Veteran Groucho’s Operators have joined forces to form Electric City Deli, LLC which will be doing business as Groucho’s Deli in Downtown Anderson, SC starting this week on Valentine’s Day.
Operating Partner, Traywick Duffie began his deli story as a high school student in 2010 working for the first ever Groucho’s franchised location in Lexington, SC as a cashier/server. A move to the upstate for College brought him to work at the Groucho’s in Clemson, SC where he grew into the General Manager for the past 5 years. Always wanting to own his own Groucho’s, Traywick welcomed the opportunity to partner with other veteran Groucho’s Deli owners to bring the sought-after subs, salads and sauces loved by many to Anderson, SC. “I never dreamed I could be an owner of a Groucho’s when I first started”, said Traywick. “It’s really an amazing Franchise to provide such a great opportunity.”
Partner, Nick Taffee who started his career in 2006 at Groucho’s in Blythewood, SC and is currently the Operating Partner in Easley has had his eye on opening a second Groucho’s for some time now and feels the time is right to expand into the growing Anderson market. “While growth and potential were clear, it’s is the people that have made us know that Anderson will be a great fit” said Nick “Traywick and I look forward to using our combined experience to deliver the Groucho’s Deli experience to the Electric City.”
Partners Walker Garrison & Nash Patton who currently own/operate several successful Groucho’s Franchised locations in NC, SC & GA are proud to be a part of the team making this newest location possible.
Groucho’s Deli of Anderson, SC will be in Downtown Anderson Historic District at 129 East Whitner Street and will be open Monday – Sunday 11am – 9pm. Additional contact information to include menus can be found by visiting www.grouchos.com/anderson.

Nash and Walker began working at Groucho’s Original Deli in Columbia, SC directly after college.” said Bruce Miller, Franchisor. “Groucho’s of Anderson is the culmination of several years of their hard work, dedication, and ambition. We are lucky to have these gentlemen as Franchise Owners.”
