Marriott owned owned Roy Rogers and Howard Johnson's in the 80's, and, they sold Roy Rogers, and gave up Howard Johnson's. I think they still own Big Boy.

Ironically though, the service areas that Roy Rogers restaurants are in, are owned by the Marriott affiliate, Host Marrott Service, or HMS.

Lucky, Roys was my favorite "fast food" restaurant until they sold them all in the mid-90's to McDonalds. They had locations everywhere in PA.  (McDonalds turned them into Boston Markets, which have almost all closed, a few became another failed McDonalds concept "Donatos Pizza", which are still open.) My local Roy Rogers became an Applebees around 1997.

The only time I get to eat there now is @ one of the Delaware travel plazas and it isn't exactly the same.
Yeah, I remember seeing many Roy Rogers in the past.  Now the only place I see them is in travel plazas off of major highways.

There are still a few free-standing ones left in MD/VA area and some other places.


Here is a pic of a new RR that opened up in September (Fredrick, MD)

I have heard that they are trying to expand the Roy Rogers chain once again with a new Franchise system.  Of course, FAI tried the same thing with Howard Johnson's back in 1990 and we all know how well that worked out.  angry

There's a Roy Roger's in Newington on the Berlin Turnpike in Lowe's Center. There's so many restaurants around it, I'm surprised it survives. We used to go there sometimes.

Is that Roy Rogers sign in the grass (middle of the picture) actually setting inside a 1970's Howard Johnson sign?  Looks like that might be a former HoJo building in the background.
Does anyone know?:no:

Very possible - it is a shot of a (now former) Roy Rogers on the Mass Pike (Marriott lost the contract to McDonalds a few years back, so now all the rest stops have been redone with McD's and their affiliates).  Check the page listed below - the picture there is larger and you can see the Mass Pike logo (hat) in the background.

http://www.geocities.com/roy_rogers_wb/history.html

Also from that page - this line:

1986- Marriott Converts 3 Old Howard Johnson's On Mass Turnpike To Roy Rogers (and this was probably one of the three?).

Mariott was responsible for changing many of the former HoJo restaurants into other businesses.  Then they themselves got out of the restaurant scene alltogeter.  angry

Manchester CT was a former Hojos. And still operating as a RR. In fact they just remodeled and updated the location, so it looks less like a Hojo now.

Awsome fried chicken. :)

I'm surprised to find a Roy Rogers in east Cincinnati.  Must be there because of the significance of the town in which Roy Rogers was born.:huh:

I remember very well. It is called the "Fixin' Bar" where you get everything for your hamburger, plus ingredients to make a nice salad. The Newington Roy Rogers I bet still has it. It was there as early as 1992 and even before that. I always looked forward to going there after Bradlees or Ames when I was small.

That's on the New York State Thruway mainline(I-90 portion) between Syracuse and Rochester. All the service areas on the Thruway between Albany and Buffalo used to be Howard Johnson's in the early 80's. Now, the buildings are owned by ethier McDonalds or Marriott(as well as the ones between Albany and NYC). And, only two original mansard roofed Hojo buildings remain, and those are at the Iriqious Service Area near Little Falls, and the Scottsville Service Area near Rochester. All the others have ethier been remodeled extensively, or demolished. Before being Howard Johnson's, they were something else, but I can't remember the name of the company(s). The service areas between Albany and New York City, were owned by The Chefs, and the one west of Buffalo(Angola Service Area) used to be owned by Interstate United.

There is a great stand alone 1980's vintage Roy Rogers on route 5 in North Haven, CT next to the Holliday Inn. Both inside and out it looks like nothing has changed in the past 20 something years. Double-R-Bar burger, fixin's bar, holster of fries and all. Next time I'm near it I'll try and snap some photos.

Roy Rogers is a chain whose largely left behind a lot of their stores in the early 80s. I'm pretty sure the Newington location is from the 70's, having received a few paint jobs at best.

I went by the North Haven, CT Roy Rogers over the weekend and I'm sad to say it's no more. I was just there in December and it was alive and well and fully decked out for the holidays with no signs of iminent closure. It's also been removed from the Roy Rogers website.

We used to have a Roy Rodgers here in Middletown, NY but it's a Boston Market now. I remember when I was little one of my friends had her birthday party there and I wouldn't go because I didn't like the food, and when my mom called the girls mother to decline the invitation, she said no one had said they were coming. :( So then I felt bad. She was a very nice girl. Well, she still is. She still says hi to me whenever she sees me and we haven't been friends since elementary school (we're in our early 20s now). But I still think that was an odd place for a birthday party. Most people who had their birthday parties at a restaurant had them at Pizza Hut, McDonald's, or the Ground Round.
