LIMA — Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken is remodeling its Bellefontaine Avenue restaurant. The drive-thru and carryout counter will remain open during renovations, but the dining room is temporarily closed.
This is the first remodel for the Bellefontaine Avenue store in about two decades, according to Scott Gray, president of the Lee’s restaurants on Allentown Road and Bellefontaine Avenue.
Gray anticipates the remodel will take up to seven weeks. Once complete, the interior will feature new granite countertops, upgraded seating and flooring as well as new décor, like replicas of the restaurant’s original menu.
“We’ve decided it’s time to modernize and give back to the community,” Gray said.
He plans to remodel the Allentown Road restaurant sometime in 2021.
