The last few times we were there, we noted that the "stucco" on the outside walls was cracking and starting to peel off of the  wall up front. where the car ran through it a few years ago.  I figured it would be repaired before winter or it would have been a really huge mess.

Big T has it right on the money.  The owner is doing a periodic update which includes new carpet (already completed Monday) along with new awnings, stucco refurbishing and some sidewalk changes.  Only closed for a day while carpet was laid.

How the corporate bankruptcy will impact franchise operations like DuBois remains to be seen, but this location is one of the best Perkins I have ever patronized and I wouldn't expect them to fail due the corporate actions.  Could there be a different name somewhere in the future?  Maybe, but not anytime soon.

Huddle House has agreed to buy the rights to Perkins Restaurant & Bakery with the intention of operating the family chains as distinct but sister family restaurant brands. 

Bankruptcy court documents reveal that Huddle House has agreed to pay $51.5 million for Perkins.

Perkins has been operating under court supervision since its parent, Perkins & Marie Callender’s, filed for Chapter 11 protection in early August.

The combination of the brands will result in a 700-restaurant operation with collective sales of about $800 million, Huddle House said in announcing the deal. About 220 of Perkins' units and roughly 315 of Huddle House's 351 units are franchised.

Perkins will be run by Huddle House’s leadership team out of the buyer’s Atlanta headquarters, the announcement indicated. It specified that Huddle House has no plans to turn any Perkins units into Huddle Houses, nor vice versa, and indicated that both brands would be expanded.
