Sugar Tit is an unincorporated community in Spartanburg County in the upstate of the U.S. state of South Carolina. The Sugar Tit area has about five mile radius around Joe’s Lake. It is located around the junction of State 101 and State 296 southeast of Greer, between Reidville and Five Forks.[2] It is mostly farmland and plantations. After BMW came more subdivisions and industrial parks appeared in the area.[3]

Sugar Tit received its name when the men spent so long socializing at the local general store, their wives complained they took to the store like a baby to a sugar tit.[4]
