New Rally’s restaurant will open here Tuesday

Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc., the nation’s largest double drive-thru restaurant chain and parent company of both Checkers® and Rally’s® concepts, is opening its 35th Rally’s location in Kentucky at 210 South L. Rogers Wells Boulevard in Glasgow, KY on Tuesday, April 10.

“We are excited to bring the full-flavored menu and guest-focused speed of Rally’s to the Glasgow-area,” said Eva Rigney, Rally’s franchise owner. “Our guests are very important to us, and we hope they are as excited about our presence in the community as we are.”

With two drive-thru lanes and a walk-up window, Rally’s restaurants are designed to provide the highest quality products with fast and friendly service, and are uniquely suited to serve guests who are eating more meals at the keyboard or dashboard than ever before.

“Fast food service is part of America’s on-the-go lifestyle,” Rigney said. “Rally’s provides great food with a fun and fast drive-thru experience.”

Glasgow’s new restaurant is among four new Rally’s® restaurants coming to Kentucky. Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc., has entered into a franchise and development agreement with new franchisees, Eva and David Rigney, to build four Rally’s restaurants in Central Kentucky over the next five years.

Kentucky is a core region for the brand, with 34 Rally’s locations already in the state. The franchise agreement with Eva and David Rigney serves to drive the Company’s strategic growth plan by further developing key regions in the U.S.

The exact locations for the other three new Rally’s restaurants are pending, but all will be located Central Kentucky.

“Checkers is committed to growing our brand in key regions through franchise development. At the same time, we are establishing our restaurants in targeted expansion markets with franchisees capable of opening multiple units,” said Ron Levondosky, Executive Vice President of Franchise at Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. “We are very pleased to welcome Eva and David Rigney to our team and look forward to working with them to bring more Rally’s restaurants to Central Kentucky.”
