CHARLESTON, S.C. — Comedian Bill Murray’s long-planned food truck park in South Carolina is set to open its doors this summer.

The Charleston Post and Courier quotes Murray and his two partners as saying The Container Bar will start serving customers later this summer. The food truck hub will be parked at a former Charleston office building that’s been gutted and redesigned to suit the new venture.

Murray and his partners, Brad Creger and Mike Veeck, opened a Charleston restaurant in an abandoned gas station several years ago. Creger says that the three have since purchased most of the surrounding lots and are moving forward with the food truck project.

The project was initially called Food Truck-O-Rama, but Creger says it’s now The Container Bar. He says the building may be finished in August.

Closer to home, Chicagoans can partake of a Murray-inspired eatery at Murray Bros. Caddyshack Restaurant in surburban Rosemont. The sports bar/restaurant opened in April.
