Old (Chain) Restaurants Sat, 08/9/03 12:02 AM (permalink)
I don't travel much, but there are a lot of restaurants that I remember from my childhood that I wonder if they survived. Does anyone know if there are: Mister Donuts, Spudnuts, Mell-o-Creme or Dixie Creme Donuts, Lum's, or Howard Johnson's (not the hotel, the restaurant with 28 flavors of ice cream? Incidentially, about an hour south of me, in Mattoon, Illinois, there is a Burger King that does not sell Whoppers. They predated the Whopper by about five years, and won the court case when BK sued. A few years ago, BK asked if they could build a restaurant in Coles County, and the original BK answered, "no way!" I believe there is also a McDonald's restaurant in Onarga, Illinois that doesn't sell McAnythings. The owner's name is McDonald, and the courts have ruled that he has a right to use his name on the restaurant
