Is there a Godfathers Pizza restaurant in central Iowa anymore?

Yes Godfathers is still in Boone and Ames... They do mostly carryout/delivery with very little dine in. (depending on location).

Basically GF has gone to the small scale inside a store type of place, or farming out their pizza biz.... I expect to see more in gas stations over the next few years since Caseys is doing a good business with theirs.

Owner (K.L. Mian) of Boone Burger King also owns the Burger Kings in Ames (Lincoln Way and 13th St), Storm Lake, Spencer, and Spirit Lake.

He also owns KFC in Boone, Ames, Carroll, Storm Lake (he shut down Denison and Carroll 4 or so weeks ago) and KFC/Taco Bell (dual store) in Clear Lake and is in the process of building one in Story city. He also owns Happy Chef in Story City.

Last I heard (2 months ago) he was going to wait for the KFC/TB store to finish construction before starting the transformation of the GF building into BK. Last I heard (week ago or so), new construction project was behind by a few weeks. Last I heard (many months ago) target date for the new BK to be open was late 2012. I wouldn't hold my breathe.

It's been rumored that McD's is going to close when the Burger King opens.

It would nice if we could get an Arby's in town.

Everytime I go by the drive through is usually packed. There isnt enough parking in the regular lot. I think they need to expand, take over KFC.
