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.
