Shoney's, the Nashville-based chain founded in 1947 and operating in 16 states, will unveil its new design prototype in early 2017 at its Donelson, Tenn., location. The design brings Shoney's up to date with a contemporary, warm and inviting space that pays homage to the brand's heritage. The exterior features reclaimed wood, stone siding and a prominent backlit Shoney's logo. Some new and existing locations will have a large outdoor patio that can be enclosed by sliding and garage-style glass walls for multiseason use. The interior will feature a full-service beverage bar highlighted by bright red tiles. A long community table lit by cast- iron chandeliers will host larger parties, and the dining room will be separated from the bar area by large curved booths. The new design reflects the com- mitment of Shoney's chairman and CEO, David Davoudpour, to reinvigorate and revitalize the 70-year-old brand to remain relevant for today's evolving American dining landscape. Shoney's hopes to open 10 new locations in 2017 with the new restaurant design. A DIVISION OF TMI INTERNATIONAL, LLC Shoney's Unveils New Prototype
