Louisville Kentucky was another stronghold for Sandy's. There were three locations; 1007 W. Broadway, 5009 S. Third St. and 1420 Poplar Level Rd.
The 1968 Sandy's locations list shows one of these locations as a possible 1967 opening. The 1973 list shows Poplar Level Road as Sandy's #317 and 3rd Street as #318 which points to a 1973 opening. Perhaps these locations were rebuilt as the new mini or maxi Sandy's restaurants as some locations were switching to the new buildout at this time and maybe they were renumbered into the 300 range at that time.
Robby Delius shows yet another scenario by providing both the 1965 and 1969 city directory listings for Louisville which shows Poplar Level and S. Third Street as being in existence in 1965 as well as 1969!
1007 W. Broadway is not listed in the directories and is shown as a potential Sandy's on the 1973 list so it most likely opened as a Hardees in 1973 or 1974.
Special thanks to Rob Delius for his outstanding research!
