Kings Family Restaurants gets a makeover for 40th anniversary

WHITE OAK Pa. In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the Kings Family Restaurants chain is beginning a renovation of all 35 stores, company officials said.

In addition to the design upgrade, the company said it is making an expansion push, with plans to open one or two stores a year over the next several years.

The systemwide update is intended to freshen and upgrade the concept, the executives said. The family chain, based here, hired Louis & Partners Design of Bath, Ohio, to develop the new design.

“This is a multiyear, multimillion dollar commitment,” Kings president and founder Hartley King said in a statement. “This is our opportunity to give our current customers and our new customers an improved dining experience.”

The new design will encompass an updated floor plan, the use of natural woods and an earth-tone color scheme.
