Greenville’s Big Boy restaurant gets new look and menu

Greenville’s Big Boy restaurant gets new look and menu

By Mike Taylor

GREENVILLE — Big Boy may still be a little on the chubby side, but in Greenville, at least, the burger-toting trademark of this venerable restaurant recently underwent a major makeover. The Greenville Big Boy, located at 1500 W. Washington St., is one of a handful of franchises in the nationwide chain to receive major renovations.
According to Big Boy assistant manager Briana Foley, the restaurant took part in a contest to be among a select group to undergo the renovations.

“This was a company wide contest to see who was going to be good enough to take part in this pilot program,” Foley said. “We were good enough. We are setting a higher standard for Big Boy.”

Among the changes are a greatly expanded menu, as well as a completely revamped buffet containing several previously unavailable choices and additional meat items.

Nelson’s Speed Shop to rebuild by winter

From The Daily News


MONTCALM TOWNSHIP — Less than a month after a devastating fire, Nelson’s Speed Shop has opened for business.

The Montcalm Township business is operating out of an office with an outside showroom and is trying to continue business as close to normal as possible. But the shop will not be outdoors for long, according to owner Jack Nelson, who said he plans to start layout plans next week and have a new shop rebuilt by winter.

Currently, the business is operating out of snowmobile trailers and tents on the south end of the Nelson’s Speed Shop property. Nelson said a mobile office should be in place next week.

“We are out in the open air,” Nelson said.
