New franchisees Ricky Bagwell and Jim Prentice recently acquired restaurants in Crestview, DeFuniak Springs and Chipley, and said the Hub City's franchises missed the last corporate redesign, leaving them with a 10- or 15-year-old appearance.

The men expect physical improvements to begin within weeks and expect completion by mid-May.
