The company originated with a drive-in restaurant called "Parkette" in Charleston, West Virginia. Alex Shoenbaum opened the restaurant in 1947, then acquired a Big Boy franchise in 1951. Two years later, Shoenbaum renamed the Parkette "Shoney's Big Boy." During this time, Ray Danner was building a restaurant business in central Tennessee and opened his first Big Boy franchise in 1959 in Madison, Tennessee. He incorporated his privately owned company in 1968

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Shoney's, Inc., is one of the restaurant industry's most respected companies. As of 1998 the restaurant chain operated or franchised over 1,300 restaurants in 34 states, including Shoney's, Captain D's, and the Pargo's and Fifth Quarter specialty restaurants. The company owned 893 restaurants and franchised 494 others.




Classic Buffets

Buffets are a fun way to bring family and friends together. Shoney's has been referred to as the poor man's buffet. I beg to differ. The buffets at Shoney's are a good value for the price.Shoney's is a family restaurant in 18 states throughout the south and midwest. Their popularity comes from the all you an eat buffet with down home cooking along with the option of freshly prepared entrees from the menu.
