The Checkers sign on 1st Avenue is looking so Checkers-ish
OK! Apologies for TWO Checkers-related posts in one week. But! We hadn't seen the Checkers signage for ourselves at 225 First Ave. between East 13th Street and East 14th Street … until yesterday afternoon.
Look how it gleams in the afternoon sun!
We actually don't know a thing about Checkers. According to the Checkers franchising website: "Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. burst onto the burger scene with their over-the-top flavors in 1986 in Mobile, Alabama."
And what do they serve?
"Burgers, Wings, Seasoned Fries and Shakes, if it's over-the-top flavor you're looking for you'll be sure to find it at a New York Area Checkers."
In April 2013, Crain's reported that Checkers was going to add another 22 restaurants in NYC by 2015.
So maybe we better get used to seeing them.
