Nancy Maybury and Mary Teegarden, the mother-daughter duo that own Legacy Pancake House, are purchasing Holly’s Home Cooking, located at 489 E Dixie Drive in West Carrollton.

“We are very excited to reopen Legacy Pancake House in West Carrollton,” said Maybury. “Our customers and staff have been waiting for this moment and we are excited to see some old faces and meet new ones.”

Legacy Pancake House was located at 1510 N. Keowee St. in Dayton for nearly 16 years until it was destroyed by a fire in October 2023. The restaurant was a total loss and has since been demolished.

“Legacy customers have been very loyal and we look forward to serving them again and treating them to our signature dishes, just the way we always have,” Teegarden said.

This news comes days after Kevin and Kelly McClure, the owners of Holly’s, announced on Facebook they are closing their restaurant after business on Feb. 22.

“It has been a pleasure serving our customers, many that have become friends and family over the last 31 years, but it is time to say goodbye,” the post said. “We want to thank our employees for their hard work and help making Holly’s what it is. As well as our customers for their support over the years. We will cherish so many good memories of Holly’s and hope you will too.”

We reached out to the McClures for more information on the closure, but they have declined to comment.

Mike Lucking, economic development director for the City of West Carrollton, is looking forward to the reopening of Legacy Pancake House in West Carrollton for their previous customers and new customers from Holly’s.

“The city is engaged with Legacy to help get them off to a fast start in the new location, but we are also reminded of the years of service and impact Holly’s had on our community,” Lucking said. “We wish Kevin and Kelly much happiness and joy in their retirement.”

Maybury and Teegarden will open the restaurant in April.
