Lake George Howard’s Johnson’s Restaurant Last of Its Kind
When the Bangor, Maine HoJo's close next month the Route 9 location in Lake George will be the last one in operations.
According to News 10, there are only two HoJo's restaurants still running: the Lake George location and one in Bangor, Maine. The Maine location will be closing up shop September 6th, leaving the Lake George location as the sole remaining eatery bearing the HoJo's name.
Howard Johnson's use to be an institution, right? I remember as a kid travelling we either ate at a HoJo's on the road, and if the family did not eat at one, we certainly saw them out on the road.
Luckily for us, the HoJo's in Lake George is doing well. According to the News 10 article owner John Larock says business is good and they are actually planning improvements to the location.
There is actually a website dedicated to the history of HoJo's. Luckily for us we still have a place to go for some HoJo's fried goodness.
