From Monday, October 22 through Sunday, October 28, Taylor Big Boy will be celebrating by tying in their 1968 inception with 68 cent food specials, visits from Big Boy himself, a Saturday event with balloon animals and face painting, and drawings to win Big Boy gift cards.

The restaurant (10450 Telegraph Rd, Taylor, MI 48180) has been continuously serving diners since 1968, when George, Joe and Chuck Darany opened their doors. The restaurant has evolved with the changing times, from car-hop service to salad bars, always with updated menu selections to keep up with current tastes.

“We have also been a strong booster of our local community and its educational foundations throughout our history, with programs like Celebrity Server Nights, Read for Fun Programs, and educational scholarships,” says Rich Swor.  “We have enjoyed having multi-generational employees and customers, and watching their children grow.”

Owners Swor and Darany recently completed a major renovation of the entire restaurant, and marked the occasion with a ribbon cutting ceremony, where Big Boy Restaurants CEO David Crawford congratulated and thanked them for being exemplary Big Boy franchisees.  Since 2014, Big Boy Restaurants International LLC has invested over $20 million into new and remodeled restaurants and new franchises.
