Restaurant City’s update this week brings us a blast from the past introducing a 50′s Drive In theme with a dash of pepper, Dr Pepper that is ! Expect your customers to be humming, whistling or possibly even singing this famous Dr Pepper jingle by the time they leave your 50′s styled diners !!
In the 50′s, diner parking lots were a popular hang out spot for all kinds of characters for showing off their suped up Hot Rod with bent eight (V8) engines before a fun night at the drive in followed by dare devil street racing. For the exterior of your restaurants with this update we have included all the necessary items to recreate this look. You may also notice our very own Maggie has made superstar status being featured on the Dr Pepper sign for your restaurants !
