Future of Shoney's Bldg.

I read in the Paintsville Herald that the Ewer's family has sold the Shoney's building to Appalachian Land and Leasing. That is Marty and Theresa Johnson of Hazard. They own a boatload of Wendy's and Applebee's Restaurants. Is this going to become an Applebee's sometime soon. Applebee's ain't the best, but it'll instantly become the best in town. Maybe this will trigger some others to try our market.

All the Applebee's I've ever been to are upbeat places, does that mean they will be importing the employees?

Yes indeed. They do a ton of business, especially during Grand Openings. They will go through a lot of staff turnover before they find their crew. I think they overhire considerably to allow for the departures. They have a very aggressive training team that travels to store openings company wide. It's all pre-fabricated, frozen foods that are finished off to order. But, for bar food it's not bad, it'll do just fine. Good Happy Hour.

Rumor is they are tearing down the old building. Now here's the bad part. The lease is up on the old Wendy's building....yep...you guessed it....a new Wendy's....at least thats the rumor. No Applebees for you Paintsville.

Yes, the owner of Paintsville's Wendy's bought the Shoney's building. The same people have been building a Wendy's in Salyersville for three years now; all that is there is the footer. So Paintsville "may" someday have an Applebees's or a new Wendy's. I wouldn't hold my breath though.

I just hope they fumigate the area before they rebuild anything. God knows what kind of nasty creatures Shoney's left behind.

The owner of the Wendys, also owns several Applebees locations. I bet money on a new Wendys because they are up for a scrape and rebuild at that Wendys.

I would say a applebees because they can put in a bar now and they would make lots of money there. They have a fabulous bar. They have agood name and would bring more people into Paintsville.

It makes sense for them to want to relocate Wendy's to make it the first restaurant patrons drive past when they leave Walmart. Applebee's does suck compared to other full service franchise restaurants, but it sure beats the Hell out of Wendy's or any other place we have here as of yet.

it's probably wendy's... it would be too close to pikevilles applebees to be a bees. or it could be a hampton inn because marty and theresa own them too. they own tons of wendy's, and the surrounding applebee's and a couple hampton inns starting up too.. i'm not sure how many altogether applebees there are but theres quite a few of them and countless wendys. they are good business people. it will be successful, whatever it may be

That wasn't salmon, that was the not so elusive brown trout found in all east Kentucky waters. They seem to congregate around straight pipes. Very easy to catch. Don't know how they ever found a way to prepare it though. Looks like shit, smells like shit, and taste like shit. Wait a minute....

I heard the next owner is going to build a crappy building, load it with rats and roaches, then put an out of business sign up. That way, they can avoid all the grief of trying to keep the place going for the next ten years!
