Forgotten Fast Foods: Sandy's Part 2

Friday, June 18th 1965 was the grand opening for the Lorain Sandy's drive-in at 1111 Meister Road in the Lorain Plaza Shopping Center. The ad announcing the opening promised a festive atmosphere, with the Cleveland Kiltie Band performing, as well as an appearance by the local "Miss Sandy".
   Miss Sandy, of course, was the advertising mascot for Sandy's, a cute blonde kilted lassie doing a Highland dance. Her greatest exposure was on the rotating sign in front of each restaurant.
   The ad at right appeared in the Lorain Journal in July 1965. The toasted cheese sandwich sounds pretty good; it must have been, because when I showed a copy of this ad to one of the librarians at the Lorain Public Library, the toasted cheese sandwich is the specific menu item that she fondly remembered!
