COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Britt Poston, a Zaxby's franchisee owner, confirmed he will no longer pursue the old Harper's location in Five Points, despite a concerted effort to occupy the vacated restaurant space

Poston says he canceled the plans after protests and a lawsuit from other nearby business owners and he plans to pursue new locations to expand to.

The City of Columbia was facing a lawsuit after the Board of Zoning Appeals voted to allow Zaxby's to take over the location and include a drive-thru. The lawsuit said that traffic would be a major issue in the area and that the permit was issued improperly.

The venture also faced opposition from multiple members of the Five Points Association.
