Church's Chicken, 2436 Taylor Street: February 2018   18 comments

Posted at 12:57 am in closing










As you can see from the sign, this Church's Chicken at the foot of Gonzales Gardens and in the location of the old Drake's is now closed, or colsed, if you prefer.

I would guess this means a little more business for the KFC on the next block up, but *this* bird has flown the coop.

(Hat tip to commenter Andrew)

UPDATE 19 December 2018 -- As mentioned in the comments, some sort of construction is going on here, though there is no signage indicating what might be coming next:




UPDATE 21 February 2021 -- As mentioned in the comments, to be an Asian Express:

  2. @Homer had to go back and look at the picture after I read your comment but you are 100% right. It's amazing how much correct spelling doesn't seem to matter anymore.

  3. Ha! You mean like marquee? Now that's a hoot. I also like the other hand printed signs. The opposite of "open for business" is simply closed. If management was responsible for the signage I have a good idea of why they "closed for business".

  4. I noticed the colsed when I noted this closing but didn't see the 3rd of the 3 words in the door poster sign but I noticed one said 'closed for business' while another on the drive thru menu said 'close bur business' and my first thought is that obviously spelling and grammar emphasis wasn't a big part of the training they got...and considering the less than impressive things that have been said about Church's in general that can't bode well...

  5. @Joe - I know better that that. I blame the spelling and usage on the 100.2 fever I was running this morning. Looks like all this creeping crud has finally caught up with me....

  6. It's also something of an iron law of the Internet, that if you note a spelling error, your note will contain one..

    Certainly has happend to me more than once!

  7. I know you guys have seen the articles over the years about how our brains (at least some of us) are wired to interpret text that is scrambled as long as the first an last letters or correct.

  11. The other recommendation I have is to ride by and see if there is any signage for a contact person on the site of the building itself...
