Rich Kummerlowe, author of the terrific America's Landmark: Under The Orange Roof website has found the first article documenting Sandy's Stevens Point, Wisconsin location! This article is from 08/30/72 and announces the soon to arrive Sandy's location #285.
Stevens Point Sandy's was one of the last Sandy's to ever open. Incredibly, IT DID NOT SWITCH TO HARDEES IN 1973 WITH THE OTHER 90% of all Sandy's!!! Stevens Point has the distinction of being the last Sandy's to ever open and remain a Sandy's!
In an amazing turn of events, this Sandy's succumbed to the inevitable and became a Hardees at some point and remains a thriving location to this day.
Cath-Meyer Corporation, former owners of the Macomb, Illinois Sandy's location was the owner of Stevens Point Sandy's. Gary Meyer, the vice-president of the corporation was named the manager in this article and his name is shown as the manager of the location on the final 1973 Sandy's list!
If you have any memorabilia, pictures or stories of Sandy's in Stevens Point Wisconsin or elsewhere, please email me!
