Reporter Jill Harmacinski tells us in an Eagle-Tribune article today that the famous Lawton’s Famous Franfurters late of a shakey location along a canal in South Lawrence – will reopen soon in a new location. Many attempts were made to lure the iconic Lawton’s to locations outside of the City of Lawrence but the owners and city leaders didn’t let that happen.
Lawton’s owners, Scott and Joanne Curley, alongside Mayor William Lantigua, yesterday announced Lawton’s will reopen in a new building at South Union and Jamaica streets that will be a larger replica of the original site and have plenty of parking.
Construction will start this spring and the Curleys hope to reopen by July 4th.
Can a “landmark” move, keep its cache and still remain successful. Stay tuned.
