COLUMBIA — It’s been a year and a half since the Columbia-based owners of 2 Fat 2 Fly, which made stuffed chicken wings so beloved they got a reality TV show, closed their restaurant and parked their food truck.
“They had the magic,” Columbia caterer Dupre Percival recalls, “and almost immediately, it was noticeable. I would pop in on them just so they’d see my face. All of a sudden they were gone.”

Apparently not. Founders Ramone Dickerson and Corey Simmons are cooking up a new plan, but they have nothing ready to go just yet.
“A lot of people think that it’s dead,” Dickerson says. “It’s definitely not dead.”
2 Fat 2 Fly closed in January 2018 when Dickerson became the executive performance chef for the University of South Carolina athletic department. His friend and co-founder Corey Simmons is working with his sister on her T-shirt printing business.
Dickerson and Simmons were working at a Five Points bar in 2007, making their not-yet-famous stuffed wings for the rare customer who came in for food instead of drinks. They started their food truck business in 2010.
