McDonald's / Zesto, 9009 Two Notch Road: 2000s   8 comments

Posted at 1:11 am in historic,restaurants

I believe this is the Zesto that was on Decker Boulevard. I don't have a lot to say about it other than it didn't last long after moving. I'm not entirely sure why as there should be lots of traffic back-and-forth past it as people drive out to the new retail areas of Two Notch. Spring Valley Commons, the strip mall of which it is part is not in great shape, but I wouldn't expect that to influence Zesto's traffic too much (after all, think of Rush's at Decker Mall). I find it a bit amusing that the space, now a matress store, still has a drive-up window with intact order board:

I'd like one Queen, extra firm, two Kings and a twin please!

UPDATE 6 Jan 2010: Added McDonald's to the post title, also the full street address.

UPDATE 3 June 2010 -- Hola Mexico Mexican restaurant is now in the process of relocating here. They finally have the name on the building:

  1. It was originally a McDonalds but that didn't make it either. The problem is that it's not an easy place to get in and out of during rush hour times. While it was Zesto's it didn't live up to the quality of the other Zesto's in town. Shame.

  2. It's funny that I would see this place posted one here. As we drove by the other day I thought that it was odd to see that this mattress store did not remodel the exterior of their building. I don't imagine that it will be long before we see the mattress store posted as one of your closings. I'm sure they are losing a lot of drive by traffic (can't imagine too many people looking for a mattress store disguised as a fast food restaurant).

  3. Well, I wish them luck. It's interesting how many matress stores there are on Two Notch!

  4. Zesto closed in Lexington, as well. There is some sort of new commercial development going on now, but I'm not sure what it's going to be.
    I wonder if Zesto is having trouble, since a few have been closing.

  5. There are 2 types of Zesto's in Columbia. The old, very well run ones (especially the Triangle City location, but also Main Street), and a set of newer locations that have all since closed. The newer locations were run by different people than the old ones, and there was a huge difference in food and service quality. The old locations are doing just fine.
