About Groucho's Deli

Harold "Groucho" Miller came to Columbia, South Carolina in 1941 and opened the first Groucho's Deli, selling his original recipes for potato salad, cole slaw and salad and sandwich dressings such as "Formula 45 Sauce" (a recipe perfected in 1945). The company began franchising 60 years later, expanding throughout the Southeastern U.S.
