Dog n Suds Drive-in
Montague, MI
This Dog n Suds Drive-in opened in 1963 as the company's 316th location. This original building was remodeled in 2000. There are car hops and drive-thru service but no indoor seating. These photos are from 2011. The sign on the trailer shown in the top row above was sold to a collector on eBay for $9,000 in 2014. For more, see this website. [map]

Dog n Suds Drive-in
Norton Shores, MI
This Dog n Suds Drive-in was still operating in the 1970s. At some point, it became Kordecki's Kitchen. In 2007, the building was completely rebuilt and reopened as a Dog n Suds again. I believe the signs are replicas. The ice cream stand next door was also acquired and remodeled at the same time by the same owner. It is now known as the Twist n Shake. Does anyone know what the name of the ice cream stand was originally? For more, see this website. [map]

Jenk's Pizza also has adapted Dog n Suds Drive-in signs. This photo is from 2010. By 2012, the sign had been repainted and the name was lit with neon. The building and canopy are long gone. [map]

This Witter-Davis Furniture had an adapted Dog n Suds Drive-in sign. I don't know if there were any locations built in New York. This sign was still there in 2014 but gone by 2018.

The Train Diner sign at the Original 1800 Town tourist attraction is a repurposed Dog n Suds Drive-in sign.

JB's Drive-in
Greeley, CO


JB's Drive-in opened Jess' Sandwich Shop in 1937. The current building and canopy were built in 1964 after a fire. At that time, the drive-in became a Dog n Suds. The canopy style and plastic "Root Beer" letters are clearly Dog n Suds designs. In the mid-1970s, the drive-in split off from Dog n Suds and was renamed JB's Drive-in. Around 2012, JB's bought back into the Dog n Suds franchise with permission to remain independent. It served homemade Dog n Suds root beer. JB's closed in 2021 but the building and signs remain. A food truck, operating as Jess' Drive Inn, is currently operating in the parking lot. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
