Reba's Embroidery
Texarkana, AR
former Mr. Swiss?
Texarkana, TX
Reba's Embroidery occupies what looks like a former Mr. Swiss. [map]

This building in Texarkana which now houses the Potato Patch appears to be a former Mr. Swiss. However, the box like structure in front of the building is sloped. That could have been a remodeling. However, the similarity of that and the identical steeple as these buildings in Southaven, MS and Memphis, TN make me wonder if they weren't part of a very similar, copycat chain. The roofline on all three buildings also seems to come much closer to the ground than the other buildings. [Texarkana map]; [Southaven map]; [Memphis map]

Fat Mo's
Murfreesboro, TN
Fat Mo's was established in 1991 and has 18 locations in the Nashville area. As far as I know, this is the only one that occupies a former Mr. Swiss building or look-alike building. As described above with the Potato Patch building, this building also has the gently sloped roof on the front part of the building. It may also have had a steeple as well.

Another Fat Mo's location in Nashville occupies a former Central Park restaurant. [map]
