An extensive renovation of the Denny’s restaurant on North Main Street is underway to bring the facility up to current corporate design standards, according to the construction superintendent.
Kenneth Renieri of Food Services Concepts based in Phoenix, Arizona, said that the restaurant at 2200 N. Main St. is expected to reopen about Feb. 20 after a total remodel and an overhaul of the underground plumbing. Minor work on the exterior is also expected to occur, including some painting and, in the spring, an upgrade of the parking area.
“We are bringing it up to the current design standards,” he said, explaining that the standards are part of what is called the Heritage Model program. “We’ll have all tile instead of carpet. All new booths and tables. Different colors on the wall, artwork and different types of wainscotting.”
He added that the kitchen is also being renovated. Typically Food Service Concepts, which specializes in working with restaurants and has done other projects for Denny’s restaurant owners, completes such projects in nine days, but this one will take a bit longer because of the need to work on the plumbing as well, he said.
Chaves County property records dated December 2018 indicate that the restaurant is owned by Denny’s Inc., based in Phoenix, Arizona. The address given is associated with QK Holdings LLC., a franchisee of Denny’s and Del Taco restaurants operating in several states, according to the group’s website.
The website shows the Roswell location as one of QK Holdings’ assets. The Chaves County records also indicate the Roswell restaurant resides on land owned by the New Mexico Military Institute Foundation Inc.
