The grand opening of A&W Restaurant, located at 1804 W. Main in South Jacksonville and the south end of the Fast Stop, took place on Saturday, July 23. General Manager Mia Perry gave us “the scoop” on some happenings during the day, noting that there was a wheel spin for guests during the day to take their turn for winning a prize. Perry said that Dottie Butler of South Jacksonville won a free combo meal for a year, which equates to 52 free vouchers for the combo meal of her choice to be used when and how she chooses. Ron Lawless and Ben Wild also came up big winners on the wheel spin, each walking away with free floats for a year.
