Good-bye to Fresh Seasons

Long John Silver's, which shared space with Kentucky Fried Chicken on West Stadium, closed in September. "I don't know why. I'm just a shift manager," said the young man at the KFC counter. KFC now occupies the whole space. Both chains are owned by the conglomerate Yum! Brands, and the two have dual franchise arrangements in many cities. A media contact at LJS did not get back to us about why this particular partnership closed. A few informal inquiries among fast food aficionados suggests that the chicken was outselling the fish by a long margin.

When Cafe du Jour shut its doors in mid-October, the only explanation was a sign on the door that said the restaurant had closed due to the bad economy. Owner Dan Massey, who bought the restaurant from Tiffany Lynn Salsini in early 2008, was unavailable for comment.
