Those looking for a quick but tasty breakfast or lunch in Bennettsville will soon have a new option.
Using a small building that they already owned, Bill and Rachel McDonald plan to open The Nomad Cafe and Coffee Company, which will be located at 108 South Marlboro Street, as soon as the end of March.
The path to the opening of this new enterprise is a bit curvy, mostly influenced by the pandemic.
The McDonalds have owned a home in Bennettsville for several years but only made it their primary residence about a year ago. They were living most of the year in Italy as Bill finished an assignment as an engineer.
However, after facing the early days of the pandemic in almost complete quarantine, the McDonalds escaped Italy to their new hometown at the first opportunity. That set in motion their goal of opening a restaurant.
