Recent Franklin's-related news

If you once toiled away at a Franklin's Family Restaurant, these links could be of interest to you.

From the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader...

After 26 years, Friendly's closes it's Dallas location
From the Scranton Times-Tribune...

Friendly's closes South Abington and Dallas restaurants

Twenty years ago, Friendlys had almost 1,200 units, and uniquely, all company-owned. No franchises. Now they have less than 500. Sad.

Then again, there was this Wilkes-Barre-based restaurant manager some 25 years ago who told those self-impressed boys from Wilbraham, Massachusetts that neither their sub-par menu items nor their ridiculous penchant for cooking out of microwaves would cut it. Yup! That was your author.
