Chipley McDonald's reopens today

CHIPLEY —The Chipley McDonald’s restaurant will  re-open at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15. 

The previous McDonald’s building was demolished in May to make way for the new restaurant. The restaurant was originally built in the 1980s.

“They’re set to re-open on Thursday,” City Councilman Kevin Russell told the council on Aug. 8 during the council’s August workshop. “There is a painting of the Chipley water tower in the restaurant, it really looks nice.”

City officials got a early look at the new restaurant on Tuesday evening at a V.I.P. event.

“We are long-time neighbors and partners in this community, and as our community and customers evolve, we want to evolve with them,” said Dennis and Linda Lareau, owners of the restaurant. “This remodel project provides our customers with a unique dining experience that welcomes them and their families into a new and comfortable atmosphere.”

During the re-build displaced crew members from the Chipley restaurant continued to work for owner/operators Dennis and Linda Lareau at another location in Washington county until the new restaurant’s opening. 

The building’s exterior is a natural progression, departing from the standard double mansard roof building, which has been a McDonald’s trademark since 1968, according to a news release from the company.
