How is there still a Quincy's Family Steakhouse in Florence, SC?

This may or may not get any responses, but this relic has always caught my attention when I've done the I-95 drive through South Carolina. At exit 164 in Florence, there's a Quincy's Family Steakhouse right next to the exit. Thing is, it's the exact same signage and restaurant design as the chain of Quincy's Family Steakhouses that used to be all over the South, pretty much in every southern town. Was this the original location? Did they somehow acquire the rights from the company to use the exact name, logo, design, and other intellectual property of the now-defunct restaurant chain? From pithy descriptions on the web, it sounds like they're still doing things the same way - those famous yeast rolls, the cafeteria-style line for desserts and drinks and how you place your order and pay first, then sit down. and how there's still a god-awful salad bar.

Would be fascinating to get some backstory on this place.
