Checkers coming to Thomson

McDuffie County Planning Commission Director Fred Guerrant said he expects to receive the development plans for a new checkers restaurant in the next few days.

He said he'd talked to company officials about plans for a restaurant on the property between Taco Bell and Arby's on Washington Road.

Andy Pye, now a franchisee of eight restaurants in the Augusta area, said he chose Thomson after traveling through the area as well as visiting over the years. Checkers is the largest double drive-through restaurant chain in the world, and the local one will employ about 30 people.

"I've always thought it was a good (interstate) exit, and I've always thought that a Checkers would do well there," Mr. Pye said.
