DQ Mystery Solved

I think we've got the answer on the old Dairy Queen. According to a very reliable source, the old building is being torn down to make way for a new Jets Pizza restaurant.  According to county records, the property is owned by Richard Lawhorn.

Even though the building has been partially torn down, according to Lenoir City officials, the owner/contractor failed to obtain a demolition permit from the city before beginning the demolition of the old building so the city issued a stop work order on the project. Application for a permit has now been made and completion of the demolition should finished soon.

Anyway, the old Dairy Queen is a goner and a new Jets Pizza is coming soon.
