20 National Chains We Want in Bangor
We had some great Facebook comments from Z-107.3 listeners!
I just want Arby's back... Sonic would be cool.
I’d like golden coral or anything with a decent buffet
Panera! We have enough chains where 98% of the menu consists of food that's deep-fried.
Sonic’s food is really gross. McDonald's is a major step above Sonic’s food.

i could care less about another fast food restaurant i want a trader joe’s or whole foods
We have a big empty Dennys and a smaller empty Burger King in Ellsworth. I think a Macaroni Grill or I-hop would fit into the big one and an Arbys in the little one. Actually,something like a Chuckie Cheese would do well here since there is no place for kids. (Not that I am recommending these in particular, anything would be welcome)
Enough of these fast food places! Let's get some places where there is a variety for everyone in the family!! How about Golden Corral??!!
Cracker barrel!! We have enough burger, chicken and sandwhich places, bring on some home cooked style food!
Any of them that they keep advertising up this way, if not, then stop advertising for something we don't and will not be getting
Popeyes was in Newport years ago, would love for them to come back to the area. The closes one we have is in Gardiner at the rest area.

In addition to Krispy Kreme, I would love to see Lambert's... home of the "throwed roll". We would always stop in Sikestpn, Missouri on the way to, and back from the races in Memphis. The amount and variety of food you could get was amazing, and the prices were really reasonable. The servers would always ask if you wanted a roll...if you said "Yes", they would throw them at you until you caught one. That place was always packed. A Golden Coral would be nice also, but I am afraid buffet style places are falling by the wayside, thanks to the COVID "pandemic."
Toss up between Wahlburgers and Boston Market…I voted Wahlburgers because they have delicious adult beverages and appearances from Mark and Donnie would be Ah-mazing!!!
I don't live up there, but I'm surprised you don't have a Waffle House .
Dave & Buster's and Outback Steakhouse would be AWESOME! My 2 favorite places to go outside of the state
Forget national chains... What we need in downtown Bangor is a locally owned burrito shop. How do we convince 86 This! from Ellsworth to open a second location here? That would be amazing!
