Now that Shoneys has closed its doors, I am hoping a Fat Pattys or another good restaurant will open at that location, we could use a good eating out place in St. Albans, instead of having to go to Teays Valley or Cooridor G. We have a load of fast food a good sit down eatery would be great!

I was told that the old shoneys in saint Albans is going to become a Wendy's. rumor is the Jefferson Wendy's, and 6th ave Wendy's will both close, and the old shoneys building will house an updated Wendy's.

Jimmy Love bought the building to expand his dealership.

The Kanawha City location is going to become a Denny's later this summer. I heard there going to tear down the existing building and build a Denny's starting in July.

That Shoney's sucked as they all do. Crappy food, crappy prices. Don't know how it was before it closed but 10-15 years ago lots of employees there were on some BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD stuff. Maybe they cleaned it up or maybe they did not but I would never go back after finding out and in case you're wondering my now dead cousin dealt it to them so that's how I would know. Smack.
I was a kid working there 12-13 years ago, and a lot of the wait staff was on uppers....most of them have now relocated to the Blvd...whenever it opens back up, that is.

They all took like mini thins...and stuff to make them have energy, I guess? I never took them, but a LOT of them did. They probably did a lot of coke too, but I was a bit naive in those days.

The company would of been fine if someone who know how to run the corp. store like they should of, it wouldn't had to end this way. They ran the company in the ground, and didn't remodel or build new ones. instead they slowly drain it to the point where it was too much to put back together. The last guy who brought it , got it in bad shape and did try to put it back on. but I think the problem was they didn't stop with the frozen stuff and the fake cheese on the bar ect. They started to get the sales back and then they sold it, and the new owner couldn't it get it back or just didn't have the experience. Sad. the one in teays valley was good . anyhow the brother who own the big boy logo is doing fine in the south. Its called big boy family resturant.

They brought back the hot bar, which increased the sales and the other brother was pissed over the other one and sold what he had and the stock crashed over night. at one time you could of got the whole corp. for one hundred and fifty thousand. They brother who sold had the logo right to the big boy image and sue shoney's to stop using his logo. Its a shame the company and the founding son couldn't figure this out. because either tho the shoney's is still around in the name of big boy....I just think the name shoney's was like my child hood. I remember getting the breakfast bar as a kid and thought it was the best thing in the whole resturant chains.

Yes, and no. Yes because it was, no, because some idiot crashed her car through the front of the store. I'm guessing it will reopen once repairs are complete.

its a shame because they will have to put another damn mexi shoneys instead of another resturant. I like mexican food but the amount of mexican resturants we have now is silly!

It was a franchise operation. Taken over from corporate in August 2005 with a 20 year contract. The store wasn't profiting. In all it was grossing a negative 3000 a month. When the roof was torn off the franchise owner broke contract and took it as a loss. In the end it was the best option. It will not be reopened by the same franchisee. Could be by another private owner bit if the state is after it they will probably get it.
Booms has now opened at that location I hope they do well.

The end process of business is Bankruptcy. This is a common end product, the Dow had the 30 largest businesses in the 1930's, only one is left, GE. Republicans want to run our Government like a business. G W Bush said he was going to run the U.S. Government like a business. That's right, his end result was Bankruptcy.
You're an idiot. And I'll bet $10,000 you receive state or federal benefits for a lame a$$ disability.

Yes, I receive many disability checks from the Federal Government. What is your point? Receiving a disability for Gun Shot wounds has nothing to do with Corporations and Business filing for Bankruptcy to Screw their creditors and hiding their Profits.
