RIP Zandy’s (again)

With a total of 924 “Likes” on the page, the person behind the Zandy’s Facebook page has announced that the dream is dead. In his (her?) words: It wasn’t fake. We had been working on buying the building since they closed. The investors have given up on the idea and really didn’t take kindly to being called fake. Not enough likes for our liking stop liking Zandys as it will not be opening by us. Thanks to all who tried.. I’m as disappointed as anyone, but really…I’ve tried to be charitable and believed in the cause, but if the...

If this happens, the bank will re-consider.” Hmmm…never heard of a bank re-considering a loan based on a business garnering a certain number of Facebook “likes,” but I’m willing to suspend my disbelief for a while. Zandy’s has had quite an...

RIP, Zandy’s

Farewell, Zandy’s. A true Great Falls icon, now gone. After closing down back in January, it fought back – Fred was brought on to revitalize the joint, and together with his awesome crew, put tons of sweat-equity into restoring Zandy’s, culminating in the re-birth of Zandy’s just a few weeks later. And during Fred’s tenure, Zandy’s thrived briefly – burgers and shakes and breakfast, a cast of colorful regulars, and monthly fund-raisers for local charities. But it just wasn’t enough. With the opening of so many new eateries in Great Falls in recent months, Zandy’s could no longer compete....
