Before the Big Chicken in Marietta
Not long ago we were talking of what all used to be where the Big Chicken is. Everybody remembered Miss Georgia Dairies being there.
I brought up Zesto Custard Ice Cream. As a kid I was impressed with Zesto. What I liked about them was their birthday club. On your birthday you got a free ice cream. What a deal! Then, just as Zesto got known in town a new store named Dairy Queen opened a store at Roswell and Park Streets. I thought they were trying to copy Zesto and wouldn't last.
I also brought up that Johnny Reb's used to be where the Big Chicken is now. See above ad.
