That was Jenisons last landmark. Hope he had insurance and rebuilds . Would be a shame to lose one of the oldest operating businesses...

no kidding, i drove by there this evening and couldn't believe it, I think they have been trying to sell it for awhile so who knows what might happen. I call dibs on the chicken sign if they decide to not re open

But heres hoping they do rebuild, or i'll really miss it

Damn, if a old place goes out of biz, or just burns down, seems the jobs and all our legacy in Michigan is gone bad.

I didn't even see or hear a thing, I live about a mile away from it.It was a good alternative from the KFC's
I hope they rebuild and stick around for another 50 years or however long it has been around.

Chick'n Lick'n had been around since 1975. They celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2005. Business has been slow for them, but we all hope that they can rebuild. Thanks to them for hanging in there!!!

If they've been around since 1975 wouldn't that be 30 year anniversary? Plus original owners sold a few years ago. Are you sure you've even been there Joe?

This place was heavily in debt, losing money every day and nearly out of business. The Fire Department may want to do a very thorough investigation into the cause of this fire. Arson wouldn't be a huge surprise.
