I'm from SC so I admittedly am not very familiar with your area at all; however, I noticed that it's only 10 miles from the University of Notre Dame.
I noticed that you were a little upset about missing the summer season, but do you expect to get much traffic from the Notre Dame football season.
Seems like some people that come in for the games will stay in your area, and it could potentially increase business a good bit.
Don't know the culture up there but down here in SC tons of people buy BBQ for their tailgate menu on gameday saturdays.
