Chain Restaurants That Vanished Across America

Chain restaurants dot the American landscape. They line highway exits and shopping districts, often giving these areas a homogenous appearance, no matter where in the country you find yourself. In such environs, it’s easy to think that each chain restaurant is truly ubiquitous, available in some form wherever you happen to be visiting. But this isn’t the case. Some chain restaurants succeed, while others fail. And some cease to exist entirely. This is the kind of chain eatery we’re interested in today. Some of these places existed when you were a kid, but are gone today, and some rose and fell before you were born! From Red Barn and Burger Chef to Kenny Rogers Roasters and Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips, these are chain restaurants that vanished across America.
