Fellowship, sweet memories and dang good food
Gone are the drive-ins, diners, and hangout burger joints that littered the small town experience of the 1950’s. But here in Belton, there is one place that strives to be the location where everyone can unwind, relax, and always feel at home. That place is the Homeplace, aptly named, and this quarter’s featured business of the Belton Alliance.
In 2020, Matthew, Ansley, Lincoln, Maddie Ruth and Sadie Moore (it’s always been a family affair) went in search of the perfect place to build their dream.
“In June 2020 (in the middle of a global pandemic – LOL) we stumbled upon an old run-down restaurant building and 7.5 acres in need of a lot of TLC. We began praying over this unlikely place, and to be honest it was far from the dream we had envisioned together! BUT, God quickly revealed to us that this was it!” said Ansley Moore, co-owner with her husband Matthew.
“It took another seven months of trying out recipes,” said her husband Matthew, “before we really knew we had something special.”
February 2, 2021, at 7am the neon sign was turned and The Homeplace was officially open for business.
“We pride ourselves in providing fresh, quick service to our customers every weekday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From homemade biscuits, breakfast sandwiches and chicken breakfast bites, to hand-breaded chicken sandwiches and nuggets, to hand-pattied burgers, hamburger steaks and patty melts, to salads, chicken wings, and desserts – we’ve got all of your favorites covered!” said Matthew Moore.
“ Although we are a quick-service establishment, we are becoming known for our homemade recipes and friendly service!” added Ansley.
In addition to their homestyle cooking and drive-thru short orders, the Homeplace also caters.
They have catered teacher lunches, office parties, family gatherings and more.
It is with a 9 person staff that The Homeplace creates and offers the best and highest standards of consistently freshly made food. From the friendly servers and kitchen staff including Hailey James, Magan Sumeral, Kailyn Dyer, Cailey Penedo, Ethan Mitchell, Jason Harrison and Nathan Coker to the lead manager Jenna Ketchum and owner Matthew Moore, everyone multitasks to ensure that orders are served in a timely manner and the taste of each dish is magnificent.
“Happy, full, satisfied customers – that’s what we strive for! We welcome feedback, and we love to hear from our customers. There are very few things better than to read a 5-star review after a long day of work,” mentioned Ansley.
The Homeplace is located at 607 N Main St, Belton, SC 29627 and the phone number is 864-392-1915.
“We were ecstatic to finally join the Belton Community and have been overwhelmed with the continued support of our customers and the community,” said Matthew.
“Go by today and pick up some amazing homemade soup. There’s nothing better than a hot tasty bowl from the Homeplace on a cold day,” said Mayor Eleanor Dorn.
“And while you are there, congratulate the Homeplace crew on being named the Belton Alliance Business of the Quarter,” she added.
