Mark Miller, owner of the now-closed Kickin' Pig on Cherry Road, plans to open by the summer at the old Gulf station in downtown Rock Hill. The former family-ran Gulf station was built in the early 1930s and served as a gathering spot for community members. Miller had to close the Kickin' Pig BBQ earlier this month after Walmart announced late last year that it will buy the land and surrounding properties to build a grocery store on Cherry Road. Miller is hoping to move is BBQ business with an expanded menu to the old Gulf spot and include historic photos to pay tribute to the gas station's cultural importance.
