After over 50 years of building up its iconic status at a single location in Calgary, Alberta, Peters’ Drive-In is planning to open a second store in the city of Red Deer, about halfway on the route north to Edmonton. They are hoping to be open this spring. Peters’ owners are also considering restaurants in Edmonton and Saskatoon in the future. They are not franchising, however. These are all to be company-owned stores. Peter’s Drive-In was founded by Gus Pieters, who emigrated from The Netherlands about 10 years before he founded the restaurant specializing in burgers, dogs, shakes, and sundaes.

Leave Thanksgiving Dinner to Puckett’s Grocery
If you live near one of the Puckett’s Grocery restaurants in Nashville, Columbia, and Franklin, in Tennessee, you may find the day just got easier and, depending on your cooking skills, the food may have just improved, too. All three Puckett’s will be serving a midday Thanksgiving buffet dinner for $25 per adult. They’re also offering takeout that, by our Northeast standards, looks more than reasonably priced: they’ll roast or (even better!) smoke an 18-20-pound turkey for $75 (deep-fried for $90). Smoked pulled pork will run about $10/pound. Great sounding sides are also available, including cornbread dressing and broccoli and rice casserole. Check out their Thanksgiving takeout menu and procedures here. Continue reading
