Does anyone remember Mighty Moes, Jr. Hot Shoppe's or Hot Shoppes in the DC area? Anyone have the recipes for any of these restaurants.

      I remember Hot Shoppes cafeterias.
      I think Marriot bought them out?

      What about S&W (I think it was S&W)--there was one in Landmark, the old Landmark mall that was an outdoor mall.

      Can't think of any cafeterias in the area, except for Country Cookin' Buffet.

        Thanks! I have seen this book and it is what has lead me to ask about the chain. The Jr. Hot Shoppes was a competitior of McD's and subsequently become Roy Rogers. I have found little about it as Jr HS.

          1927: J. Willard Marriott marries Alice Sheets in Salt Lake City, Utah, and moves to Washington DC with his new bride. That spring, J. Willard and Alice open a nine-stool A&W Root Beer stand, which they later call "The Hot Shoppe."

          1967: Corporate name is changed from Hot Shoppes, Inc., to Marriott Corporation;

            you remember Pappy Parkers' fried chicken they used to serve at Roy Rogers? I seem to remember my dad telling me Marriot had bought the rights to serve at their restaurants.

              Actually Jr Hot Shoppes (later a Marriott company) had this and then Roy Roger bought them out.
