Whatever became of jim dandy chicken? It was started by friendly"s then sold off, their corporate office was in Ludlow,Ma for a time. The last one was in Springfield,Ma & closed a couple of year"s ago.

    The only "Jim Dandy" I know of in relation to Friendly's was the giant banana sundae on their menu.

        I remember when they still had a few outlets - in Westfield and Northampton maybe others.  I thought that there was maybe one left somewhere, of course the franchise organization is long gone.

          friendly's started jim dandy chicken in the mid '70's. They also tested a burger shop called special's. they were slider's and did'nt last all that long. of cource this was before they sold out to hershey. I really miss the chicken.
